Thu, September 28, 2023

The National Academy of Engineering congratulates NAE Members Nadine Aubry and Richard Miller and NAE International Members Vikram Deshpande, Wolfgang Marquardt, and Viola Vogel for their election as International Fellows to the Royal Academy of Engineering.

NAE Member Nadine Aubry, Professor, School of Engineering, Tufts University and the George and Virginia Bugliarello NAE International Secretary, is recognized for outstanding contributions to fluid mechanics and leadership in the global engineering community.

NAE Member Richard Miller, Emeritus President, Olin College of Engineering and Founding Chair, Coalition for Transformational Education, is recognized for developing a higher education institution renowned for its excellence in engineering education that has had profound transformational global impact.

NAE International Member Viola Vogel, Professor, Department of Health Sciences and Technology, ETH Zürich, Switzerland, is recognized for discovering the first high-resolution structural mechanisms about how nature exploits proteins and translating them towards medical applications. She founded the Center for Nanotechnology at the University of Washington and, among other roles, serves as a judge for the Queen Elizabeth Prize for Engineering.

NAE International Member Vikram Deshpande, Professor of Materials Engineering, University of Cambridge, is recognized for seminal contributions to the mechanics of engineering materials. The scope of his impact spans design of high-strength, lightweight micro-architectured materials, to the invention of blast-resistant sandwich panels in commercial and military ship hulls, and the prediction of the multi-physics response of a wide range of engineering materials including soft and active solids.

NAE International Member Wolfgang Marquardt, Former Chair of the Board of Directors (Vorstandsvorsitzender), Forschungszentrum Jülich, Germany, is recognized for seminal contributions across the entire spectrum, from product and process design to operations and control, as well as to the underpinning methodologies for process modelling, model-based experimental analysis, and numerical methods.
