Congratulations to Professor Lori Graham-Brady, associate director of the Hopkins Extreme Materials Institute (HEMI) and chair of the Department of Civil and Systems Engineering, for her appointment as director of the Center for Materials in Extreme Dynamic Environments (CMEDE)! Previously the associate director of the center, she assumes the duties performed by Professor K. T. Ramesh, who will now serve as associate director.
Graham-Brady is Department Chair and a professor in the Civil Engineering Department at Johns Hopkins University, with a secondary appointment in Mechanical Engineering. She is a is a leading global researcher in the field of computational stochastic mechanics, multiscale modeling of materials with random microstructure, and the mechanics of failure under high-rate loading. She has been an active member within both the Ceramics and Composites Collaborative Materials Research Groups within CMEDE. Graham-Brady is Director of an NSF-funded IGERT training program with the theme of Modeling Complex Systems. She has received a number of awards, including the Presidential Early Career Awards for Scientists and Engineers (PECASE), the Walter L. Huber Civil Engineering Research Prize, and the William H. Huggins Award for Excellence in Teaching.
