Charles Pitts Robinson and John Palmer Barstow Professor of Applied Mathematics and Engineering


George Karniadakis received his S.M. (1984) and Ph.D. (1987) from Massachusetts Institute of Technology. He was appointed Lecturer in the Department of Mechanical Engineering at MIT in 1987 and subsequently he joined the Center for Turbulence Research at Stanford / Nasa Ames. He joined Princeton University as Assistant Professor in the Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering and as Associate Faculty in the Program of Applied and Computational Mathematics. He was a Visiting Professor at Caltech (1993) in the Aeronautics Department. He joined Brown University as Associate Professor of Applied Mathematics in the Center for Fluid Mechanics on January 1, 1994. He became a full professor on July 1, 1996.  He has been a Visiting Professor and Senior Lecturer of Ocean/Mechanical Engineering at MIT since September 1, 2000. He was Visiting Professor at Peking University (Fall 2007 & 2013). He is a Fellow of AAAS (2019), the Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics (SIAM, 2010-), Fellow of the American Physical Society (APS, 2004-), Fellow of the American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME, 2003-) and Associate Fellow of the American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics (AIAA, 2006-). He received the SIAM/ACM Prize in Computational Science & Engineering (2021), the SIAM Ralf Kleinman Award (2015),  CFD award (2007) and the inaugoral J Tinsley Oden Medal (2013) by the US Association in Computational Mechanics. His h-index is 109 and he has been cited over 55,500 times (see my google scholar citations). See complete CV here. You can also check out our Geneaology Tree (remember to zoom in!).
