New Program Directors in Mechanics-Focused Programs at NSF

Dear Mechanics Community Members:

We have great news to share! Two additional program directors have joined the Mechanics and Engineering Materials (MEM) cluster. Recall that the MEM cluster is composed of two programs devoted to the discipline of mechanics: Biomechanics and Mechanobiology (BMMB) and Mechanics of Materials and Structures (MoMS). The new hires will work across and bridge both programs, forming a complement of five program directors in total serving the needs of the ever-expanding mechanics community.
