About the Author

Dr. Michael Nosonovsky is an Assistant Professor at the University of Wisconsin, Milwaukee (UWM). He is a co-author of one monograph, ten book chapters, and more than 50 research articles. For his work on the Lotus effect and biomimetic surfaces, he was honored with the 2008 Burt L. Newkirk Award by ASME.
Dr. Pradeep K. Rohatgi is Wisconsin Distinguished Professor and Director of the UWM Center for Composites. He is a pioneer in the field of composite materials, particularly metal matrix composites. Rohatgi has coauthored and edited eleven books and over four hundred scientific papers, and holds 20 U.S. patents. In 2006, he was honored with the "Rohatgi Honorary Symposium" on Solidification Processing of Metal Matrix Composites by The Minerals, Metals and Materials Society.
