It gives me great pleasure to announce the outcome of the 2013 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), Kaushik Bhattacharya (Caltech), Roger Fosdick (Minnesota University), and Yonggang Huang (Northwestern University).
The award consists of $ 1500 cash and a commemorative plaque. The receipients are honored at the ASME Applied Mechanics Banquet.
The recipient of the 2013 award is Professor Liping Liu from Rutgers University who will receive this at the IMECE 2014 in Montreal.
