Michael D. Graham is a professor of chemical and biological engineering at the University of Wisconsin–Madison. His research interests include rheology, the flow of blood and of other suspensions, and turbulence in Newtonian and complex fluids.  Recent distinctions include the 2015 APS Stanley Corrsin Award, a 2018 Vannevar Bush Faculty Fellowship from the Department of Defense, and the 2019 William R. Schowalter Lectureship of the American Institute of Chemical Engineers. He has been associate editor of the Journal of Fluid Mechanics and editor-in-chief of the Journal of Non-Newtonian Fluid Mechanics, and he is the author of the book Microhydrodynamics, Brownian Motion, and Complex Fluids. He is the president of the Society of Rheology.


Exciting Turbulence with Polymers

The addition of polymers to fluids leads to the emergence of a new kind of turbulence in fluid jets—as revealed by high-speed imaging experiments. Read More »
