PhD Candidate Hyoung Suk Suh selected as Finalist for the 2021 Presidential Awards for Outstanding Teaching by Graduate Student Instructor
PhD student Hyoung Suk Suh has been selected as a top 10 finalist for the 2021 Presidential Awards for Outstanding Teaching by a Graduate Student Instructor. Hyoung Suk was a teaching assistant for the soil mechanics course for the last spring semester, and was selected among nearly 500 candidates from across the University. Congratulations, Hyoung Suk for this important distinction!
PhD student Nick Vlassis passed the qualification exam. Nick's work focuses on incorporating geometric learning for computational plasticity problems with special emphasis on applications related to polycrystalline and energetic materials. In the proposal presentation, Nick presented the work of two of his recent papers published in CMAME (see list below). Nick also recently received the WCCM Fellowship to attend the conference at Paris but the meeting has been converted into virtual format due to the pandemic (see video below). Congratulations for this accomplishment, Nick!
