Congratulations to HEMI Fellow Michael Falk on being named a Fellow of the American Physical Society (APS)!
Prof. Falk is not only the vice dean for undergraduate education at the Whiting School of Engineering, but also a professor in the Department of Materials Science & Engineering with a secondary appointment in the Department of Mechanical Engineering. His research focuses on computational materials science, structural materials, and optoelectronic and magnetic materials.
Election as an APS Fellow is a major recognition of professional accomplishment from the leading organization of physicists. APS cited Prof. Falk for “fundamental advances in our understanding of the mechanical response of amorphous solids through the use of innovative computational methods and theories that reveal the connection between local rearrangements and large scale response.”
APS is a nonprofit membership organization working to advance and diffuse the knowledge of physics through research journals, scientific meetings, and education, outreach, advocacy, and international activities. The organization represents over 55,000 members, including physicists in academia, national laboratories, and industry in the United States and throughout the world.
Congratulations again, Prof. Falk!
