Todd Kingston, assistant professor in mechanical engineering (ME), has been named a Building a World of Difference Faculty Fellow in Engineering.

Kingston joined the faculty at ISU in 2020 after graduating with his Ph.D. in ME from Purdue University and completing a postdoc appointment with the United States Naval Research Laboratory. He also holds a B.S. and M.S. in ME, both from Iowa State. Much of the research that takes place in the Kingston Research Group is focused on energy transport and conversion processes involving electrochemistry, multiphase flows, and/or heat transfer.

“I am grateful for this fellowship because it will, in part, allow me to advance my goal of developing state-of-the-art solutions to some of the grand challenges in the energy sector,” Kingston said.

The fellowship is supported by Black and Veatch. Kingston’s term will last three years (ending June 30, 2025) and he will receive $22,500 in extra funding during those years.
