Congratulations to the recipients of the 2019 HEMI Seed Grants, Prof. Thomas Gernay and Prof. Daniel Viete!

Gernay is an assistant professor in the Department of Civil Engineering. His research interests include structural fire engineering, performance-based structural design, computational mechanics, and community resilience assessment. He received the grant for his project, “Modeling Ductile Fracture in Metals under Extreme Temperatures with Application to Structural Fire Computations.”

Viete is an assistant professor in the Department of Earth and Planetary Sciences, with research interests in metamorphic petrology, tectonics, structural geology, and rock mechanics. The seed grant will fund his project, “Planetary-scale fracture propagation.”

The HEMI Seed Grants are given each year to fund research in fundamental science associated with materials and structures under extreme conditions. All faculty and researchers at the Johns Hopkins University, as well as Applied Physics Laboratory (APL) Staff, who can serve as Principal and Co-Investigators are eligible to apply.
