Thomas Cubaud is an Associate Professor of Mechanical Engineering at Stony Brook University (State University of New York). He received his Ph.D. from Paris-Sud University for his research on the wetting and dewetting of patterned surfaces at ESPCI in 2001. He then joined UCLA to work as a postdoctoral research scientist in the Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering Department where his research topics included the motion of gas bubbles in microchannels and phenomena associated with liquid drop coalescence. Subsequently, he worked on microscale hydrodynamic instabilities in the Chemistry and Biochemistry Department. Dr. Cubaud is the recipient a NSF CAREER Award in 2012 as well as multiple Gallery of Fluid Motion Awards and a Frenkiel Award for Fluid Mechanics from the American Physical Society
