Written by:

Julian HuntCEE will hold the inaugural Chiang C. Mei Lecture in Applied Mechanics on Wednesday, Oct. 3 from 4 to 5:30 p.m. in Lecture Hall E14-633. The speaker will be Julian Hunt, Professor of Climate Modeling in the Department of Space and Climate Physics and Department of Earth Sciences at University College London. Hunt’s talk is titled, Fluid Mechanics and Public Policy: Environmental Impacts and Change. Hunt says, “More technical progress with great social benefits should be possible through greater collaboration between fluid mechanics and other areas of science and technology … But the greatest progress … will come from recognizing that new approaches are needed, since the future environment will have many features that differ from those in the past.”
