- Associate Professor Xiang Cheng has been named the 2019 Arthur B. Metzner Early Career Award recipient. The competitive award is given to a young person who has distinguished him/herself in rheological research, rheological practice, or service to rheology. Cheng was recognized for his innovative use of imaging and deep physical insight to unravel rheology of soft matter; and for coupling rheological measurements with state-of-the-art imaging techniques including high-speed photography, fast confocal microscopy and digital inline holography to investigate the rheology of active fluids and jammed soft materials and the impact of liquid drops. An article on the contributions of Prof. Cheng to rheology will appear in the July 2019 issue of Rheology Bulletin. The Arthur B. Metzner Early Career Award, consisting of a plaque and honorarium, will be presented at the 91st Society of Rheology Annual Meeting, accompanied by a lecture by Prof. Cheng, to be held October 20-24, 2019 in Raleigh, North Carolina.
