Prof. Paulino elected to Executive Commitee of ASME Applied Mechanics Division

Prof. Paulino will join the Executive Committee of the ASME Applied Mechanics Division (AMD) effective July 1, 2020. The committee was founded by Timoshenko in 1927. Timoshenko was Prof. Paulino's academic great-grandfather. That is, he was the advisor of the advisor of Prof. Paulino's advisor. More info on the AMD.

Prof. Paulino awarded 2020 JN Reddy Medal
JN Reddy Medal

Prof. Paulino was awarded the 2020 JN Reddy Medal "for pioneering contributions to theoretical and computational mechanics leading to advances in mimetic inspired methods (Virtual Element Method, VEM), topology optimization, and geometric mechanics associated to origami engineering including configurational metamaterials and reconfigurable structural systems." The medal will be awarded at the banquet of the 3rd International Conference on Mechanics of Advanced Materials and Structures at Texas A&M University, College Station, on March 27, 2021.

Paper wins "2019 Best Paper Award" from ASCE

Prof. Paulino and former group member, Evgueni Filipov's, paper entitled Deployable Sandwich Surfaces with High Out-of-PLane Stiffness, written in collaboration with University of Tokyo's Tomohiro Tachi, was awarded ASCE's 2019 Best Paper Award in Analysis and Computation.

Prof. Paulino awarded the ASME Daniel C. Drucker Medal
Drucker Medal

Prof. Paulino was awarded the Daniel C. Drucker Medal for "pioneering contributions to the field of mechanics, particularly advances in geometric mechanics associated with origami and tensegrity engineering that lead to the creation of multifunctional structures and configurational metamaterials with unprecedented properties." The medal will be awarded during the 2020 ASME International Mechanical Engineering Congress & Exposition (IMECE) virtual conference from November 16-19, 2020. View article from Georgia Tech CEE.
