NIA Research Fellow Selected as AIAA Hampton Roads Section
2015 Engineer-of-the-Year

Dr. Boris Diskin, Research Fellow at the National Institute of Aerospace (NIA), has been selected as the recipient of the American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics (AIAA) Hampton Roads Section 2015 Engineer-of-the-Year. Dr. Diskin is being recognized for his technical leadership and noteworthy contributions in the development of practical technologies applicable to unsteady turbulent flows.

Dr. Diskin is an internationally recognized expert in computational fluid dynamics (CFD). He has made many significant contributions to several practical CFD codes through development of new adjoint-based methods for design and flow optimization as well as new discretization methods and convergence acceleration techniques. These techniques and codes are being widely used by NASA, Boeing, and the German Aerospace Center (DLR).

“We enthusiastically congratulate Boris on his selection as 2015 Engineer-of-the-Year for the AIAA Hampton Roads Section,” said Dr. Douglas Stanley, NIA President and Executive Director. “Dr. Diskin has played a key leadership role at NIA for the past decade, and his work is making a valuable contribution to the nation and the world.”

Dr. Diskin will be recognized in the Spring of 2015, when he will present the annual Axel T. Mattson Lecture, hosted by AIAA HRS. He will also be AIAA HRS’s nominee for Engineer of the Year for the Peninsula Engineers Council and the AIAA Region 1 Engineer of the Year.
