About the Author


Dr. Emily S.C. Ching is a theoretical physicist, and is currently a Professor in the Department of Physics at the Chinese University of Hong Kong. Her general research interests lie in non-equilibrium systems, and particularly on the longstanding problem of fluid turbulence. She received her Ph.D. in Physics from the University of Chicago. Later, she was a postdoctoral fellow at the Institute for Theoretical Physics at the University of California, Santa Barbara before returning to Hong Kong. She joined the Department of Physics at the Chinese University of Hong Kong in 1995. She was awarded the Achievement in Asia Award from the Overseas Chinese Physics Association in 1999 "for contributions to the understanding of the complex fluctuations in fluid turbulence". She was elected the Fellow of the UK Institute of Physics and the American Physical Society in 2004 and 2005 respectively. The citation for her American Physical Society Fellowship reads "For leadership in the analysis of turbulent and chaotic dynamics, and particularly for elucidating the structure of turbulent correlations in turbulent systems". She also serves in the Editorial board of various journals including the Journal of Turbulence.
