Shao Lee Soo Professor D. Scott Stewart has been named an ASME Fellow, the society's highest membership grade of distinction. He has been a member of ASME since 2002.

The ASME Board of Governors confers the Fellow grade of membership on worthy candidates to recognize their outstanding engineering achievements. Nominated by their peers, ASME Fellows have had 10 or more years of active practice and at least 10 years of continuous active corporate membership in ASME.

Stewart has been part of the department since 1981, when he arrived as an assistant professor. He was promoted to associate professor in 1987, and full professor in 2005. He has published more than 100 articles in journals and conference proceedings, and has given nearly 100 invited lectures. Stewart is also a member of APS, AIAA, AAM, Tau Beta Pi, Sigma Xi, SIAM, and The Combustion Institute.

Stewart earned his BS in engineering science in 1976 from SUNY at Buffalo, and his PhD in theoretical and applied science in 1981 from Cornell University.

His current research focuses on advanced modeling and computational modeling of complex flows for combustion and shock physics systems, addressing a wide variety of problems in combustion, detonation, and shock physics of energetic materials.
