The Executive Committee of the ASME Applied Mechanics Division is pleased to announce and congratulate Professor Mary C. Boyce, Dean of The Fu Foundation School of Engineering and Applied Science and Morris A. and Alma Schapiro Professor, Columbia University, as the recipient of the 2020 Timoshenko Medal.  This award includes a medal, a plaque, and an honorarium.

The Timoshenko Medal was established in 1957 and is conferred in recognition of distinguished contributions to the field of applied mechanics. Instituted by the Applied Mechanics Division, it honors Stephen P. Timoshenko, world-renowned authority in the field, and it commemorates his contributions as author and teacher.

Professor Boyce receives the Timoshenko Medal for foundational achievements on the large strain nonlinear deformation of elastomers, thermoplastic polymers and polymeric composites; and for the development of rich mathematical mechanics descriptions of material response that reveal the material physics and mechanisms.
