Nadine Aubry is provost and senior vice president, and a professor of mechanical engineering, at Tufts University. She has made research contributions to fluids engineering, including low-dimensional models of turbulent flows and novel microfluidics methods and devices. She was elected to the National Academy of Engineering (NAE), American Academy of Arts and Sciences, National Academy of Inventors and American Academy of Mechanics, and is a fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science, American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics (AIAA), American Physical Society (APS), and American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME). She was awarded the G.I. Taylor Medal of the Society of Engineering Science, the ASME Fluids Engineering award, and the AIAA Fluid Dynamics award. She is a member of the NAE Council (governing board), co-chair of the Council’s programs committee and the Council’s representative on the Advisory Board of ERVA. She has been serving the engineering community in numerous leadership positions including as president of the International Union of Theoretical and Applied Mechanics, chair of the NAE mechanical engineering section, chair of the NAE Bernard M. Gordon Prize for Innovation in Engineering and Technology Education selection committee, chair of the NAE Frontiers of Engineering Education advisory committee, chair of the APS Division of Fluid Dynamics and chair of the U.S. National Committee on Theoretical and Applied Mechanics. Prior to joining Tufts, she served as dean of engineering and university distinguished professor at Northeastern University, and head of mechanical engineering, Lane distinguished professor and university professor at Carnegie Mellon. She holds a Diplôme d’Ingenieur from Institut National Polytechnique Grenoble, France, and a Diplome d’Etudes Approfondies from Université Grenoble Alpes, both in mechanical engineering (1984), and a Ph.D. from the Sibley School of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering at Cornell (1987).
