For innovative use of imaging and deep physical insight to unravel rheology of soft matter; and for coupling rheological measurements with state-of-the-art
imaging techniques including high-speed photography, fast confocal microscopy and digital inline holography to investigate the rheology of active fluids and
jammed soft materials and the impact of liquid drops.
An article on the contributions of Prof. Cheng to rheology will appear in the July 2019 issue of Rheology Bulletin.
