Howard Alvin Stone is the Donald R. Dixon '69 and Elizabeth W. Dixon Professor at Princeton University's Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering. He earned his Ph.D. from the University of California, Davis in 1988. After a postdoctoral fellowship at the University of Cambridge, in 1989 Howard joined the faculty of the School of Engineering and Applied Sciences at Harvard University, where he eventually became the Vicky Joseph Professor of Engineering and Applied Mathematics. He arrived at Princeton in July 2009. Professor Stone's research interests are in fluid dynamics, especially as they arise in research and applications at the interface of engineering, chemistry, physics, and biology. In particular, he developed original research directions, using experiments, theory, and simulations, in microfluidics, multiphase flows, electrokinetics, flows involving bacteria and biofilms. Stone was the first recipient of the Batchelor Prize, the most prestigious prize in fluid mechanics. For ten years he served as an Associate Editor for the Journal of Fluid Mechanics, and is currently on the editorial or advisory boards of Physical Review Fluids, Langmuir, Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society, and Soft Matter. He received the NSF Presidential Young Investigator Award, The G.K. Batchelor Prize in Fluid Mechanics (2008), and the American Physical Society's Fluid Dynamics Prize (2016). He is a Fellow of the American Physical Society (APS), the National Academy of Engineering (2009), the American Academy of Arts & Sciences (2011), and the National Academy of Sciences (2014). Stone was elected a member of the American Philosophical Society in 2022.
