We are pleased to announce that HEMI faculty member James Guest is the recipient of the 2015 EMI Leonardo da Vinci Award. The award, created in 2011 by the Engineering Mechanics Institute (EMI) of the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE), recognizes outstanding young investigators early in their careers for promising groundbreaking developments in the field of Engineering Mechanics and Mechanical Sciences, as relevant to Civil Engineering.

Professor Guest, an Associate Professor in the Civil Engineering Department,  was selected by EMI for his pioneering research in the development and implementation of topology optimization methods. It was felt that this research has been and will continue to be a tremendous asset to engineering design, particularly in the deployment of rapidly advancing technologies to control structural and material configurations never before addressed.

Professor Guest will be presented the award at the EMI 2015 Conference. To learn more about his research, visit his website.
