The 2020 American Society of Biomechanics (ASB) Goel Award was created in 2016 after Dr. Vijay Goel, the Borelli Award winner in 2014. This award honors those whose work has a biomechanic factor which started as basic research and then transitioned into a benefit for the health and well-being of humans.
Associate Professor, Shorya Awtar, has been honored with the Thomas A. Edison Patent Award from the American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME).
U-M ME Post Doc Callan Luetkemeyer has been named a Schmidt Science Fellow.
Rachel Vitali was co-advised by Prof. Noel Perkins (ME) and Prof. Cindy Finelli (EECS) on a dissertation that sought to advance inertial measurement unit (IMU) technology in two distinctly different areas of research: human biomechanics and engineering education.
Activity trackers, smart watches, glucose monitors, and other wearable biosensor technology are a growing part of our lives. Now, ME Research Associate Professor Mihaela Banu is putting her research where our mouths are, with a collaborative initiative to develop a new smart, cyber-physical dental implant system.
U-M ME, PhD student, Callan Luetkemeyer is a winner of the Savio L-Y. Woo Young Researcher Award – Biomechanical Research for ISLT-XVIII. She will be presenting her abstract at the symposium this February.
Professor Emeritus of Mechanical Engineering, Galip Ulsoy and his wife Susan Glowski have provided an endowment gift to establish the E. & M. Ulsoy Citation Leader Award Fund. This honor is awarded annually to the U-M ME faculty member with the largest number of citations to his/her research work in the Scopus Database that year.
The International Academy for Production Engineering (CRIP), is the world-leading organization in manufacturing research. Fellows are internationally recognized scientists elected to be CIRP members for life. The academy has restricted membership to 15 per country based on excellence in research.
