It gives me great pleasure to announce the outcome of the 2016 competition for the Eshelby Mechanics Award for Young Faculty. This award is given annually to rapidly emerging junior faculty who exemplify the creative use and development of mechanics. The intent of the award is to promote the field of mechanics, especially among young researchers. The selection committee consisted of: K. Ravi-chandar (UT Austin), Huajian Gao (Brown University), G. Ravichandran (Caltech), Roger Fosdick (Minnesota University), and Yonggang Huang (Northwestern University). Further information on the award may be found here.
The award consists of $ 1500 cash and a commemorative plaque. The recipients are honored at the ASME Applied Mechanics Banquet.
The recipient of the 2016 award is Professor Yong Zhu from the North Caroline State University. The award will be formally presented at IMECE 2017 at Tampa, Florida.
