Marc Ingber holds a B.S. in Mechanical Engineering from Tulane University, an M.S. in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Colorado, and a Ph.D. in Applied Mechanics from the University of Michigan. Dr. Ingber has been a member of the Department of Mechanical Engineering at the University of New Mexico since 1988 and chaired the Department from 1999-2002. He assumed the position of Director of the High Performance Computing, Education and Research Center in January of this year. His research activities have been primarily focused in the areas of multiphase flow, vorticity methods, and high performance computing. A major thrust of his research has dealt with particle-laden inhomogeneous shear flows. He has 14 years experience in mesoscale modeling of suspensions in shear flows using boundary element methods and 8 years experience in continuum modeling of suspension flows using finite element methods.
