SEM Honors Rosakis
The Society for Experimental Mechanics (SEM) has selected Ares Rosakis as the recipient of the P.S. Theocaris Award. Rosakis is Caltech's Theodore von Karman Professor of Aeronautics, professor of mechanical engineering, and chair of the Division of Engineering and Applied Science.
The award is intended "to recognize a senior individual for distinguished, innovative and outstanding work in optical methods and experimental mechanics."
In a letter to Rosakis, the chair of the SEM Honors Committee, Kristin Zimmerman, wrote, "Your selection is a well-deserved public statement by your peers of the quality and practicality of your professional contributions."
