Joao Soares, a research scientist with ICES Professor Michael Sacks, received the 2016 CVET Most Cited Article Award for co-authoring "Biodegradable Stents: Biomechanics Modeling Challenges and Opportunities."
His work was determined to be the most cited article from papers published in
Cardiovascular Engineering Technologies (CVET) in the last five years, between March 2010 and March 2016. The honor is jointly awarded by the Biomedical Engineering Society and Springer Nature.
The award comes with a $1,250 cash prize presented at the 2016 BMES Conference in Minneapolis, MN, October 5-8, 2016. Read more.Posted: Sept. 27, 2016
ICES Professor Thomas Hughes was selected to receive the 2015-16 University Co-operative Society’s Career Research Excellence Award. The award is presented annually to one UT Austin faculty member or staff researcher who has maintained a superior research program over many years and consists of a plaque and check in the amount of $10,000. This year’s award will be announced at a banquet hosted by the University Co-operative Society in October.
Hughes has made many significant contributions to the field of computational engineering and science over the years, and has become an international leader and statesman within the computational engineering and science community. Read more.Posted: Sept. 20, 2016
CSEM student Johann Rudi is a recipient of the 2016 ACM/IEEE George Michael Memorial HPC Fellowship.
Rudi, who is co-advised by ICES Professor Omar Ghattas and Georg Stadler of NYU, was recognized for his work on a recent project, “Extreme-Scale Implicit Solver for Nonlinear, Multiscale, and Heterogeneous Stokes Flow in the Earth’s Mantle”
Rudi’s recent research has focused on modeling, analysis and the development of algorithms for studying the earth’s mantle convection by means of large-scale simulations on high-performance computers. Mantle convection is the fundamental physical process within the earth’s interior responsible for the thermal and geological evolution of the planet, including plate tectonics.
