Andrea Prosperetti with one his many accomplishments

For much of his career, Andrea Prosperetti has been called “Mr. Bubble” by his students for his intense focus on multiphase flows including bubble dynamics and cavitation, the formation of bubbles in a liquid.

With more than 8,000 citations on the Web of Science database and 15,000 on Google Scholar, you might say his work on fluid mechanics, the motion of liquids and gases, is effervescent. “I have done an awful lot of work on bubbles,” Prosperetti says modestly.
