A conversation with Prof. Kenneth Liechti from University of Texas at Austin

Prof. Ken Liechti of University of Texas at Austin is an award-winning authority on the mechanics of interfaces, describing bonding, unbonding, and crack propagation using innovative experimental techniques with applications to thin film mechanics and graphene transfer. Pipe Major Emeritus of the Silver Thistle Pipes and Drums band out of Austin, Liechti speaks in this interview of his commitment to carrying on the traditions of his Scottish heritage, of building unique devices for uncovering the hidden science of interfacial fracture, and of his experiences articulating the value of mechanics in interdisciplinary collaborations.

A conversation with Prof. Wei Chen from Northwestern University

Prof. Wei Chen of Northwestern University is a pillar of the ASME design automation and design engineering communities and an exceptionally prolific contributor to the science of engineering design since obtaining her PhD in 1995. This AMR audio interview reflects on her long record of professional service, most recently as Editor of the Journal of Mechanical Design, and her perspectives on the power of interdisciplinary collaboration in promoting advances in predictive science, the integration of design in undergraduate engineering curricula, and how consumer choice may be influenced by purposeful design.

A conversation with Prof. Emeritus Simon Ostrach from Case Western Reserve University

Recognized by NASA as a giant in heat transfer research, Prof. Simon Ostrach received the inaugural ASME Heat Transfer Division Memorial Award in 1975 and attained membership in the National Academy of Engineering in 1978 for his fundamental discoveries in the field of buoyancy-driven convection. This AMR audio interview paints a remarkable picture of six decades of intellectual leadership and advocacy, including his work as principal investigator on two NASA Spacelab missions in 1992 and 1995 that investigated surface-tension driven convection under microgravity conditions, his commitment to the rigorous integration of research and design, and his, at one time, insatiable appetite for the thrills of weightless flight on the NASA “Vomit Comet.”

A conversation with Prof. Rodney Clifton from Brown University

Prof. Rodney Clifton is among the pioneers in the development of experimental techniques for characterizing high-strain-rate material response, recognized with membership in the National Academy of Engineering in 1989 and the ASME Timoshenko Medal in 2000. This AMR audio interview tells his story from a modest background in a one-room country school, through his labor on the early construction of Interstate 80 in Nebraska, to research on computational techniques for wave propagation in elastic-plastic materials, innovative approaches to characterizing the viscoelastic response of vocal folds, and a life-long commitment to teaching and learning.

A conversation with Prof. Thomas J.R. Hughes from The University of Texas at Austin

Prof. Thomas J.R. Hughes is a leading authority inengineering scienceand applied mechanics,recognizedfor his ground-breaking contributions to thecomputer-aidedanalysis of problems in fluid and solid mechanics. This AMR audio interview explores his experiences at the interfaces between research and design, academia and industry, and innovation and integration, his unique combination of gumption and curiosity, and how a flailing fire hose may have inspired a revolution in vascular surgery.

A conversation with Prof. Gábor Stépán from the Budapest University of Technology and Economics

Prof.Gábor Stépánis the 2015 recipient of the ASME Thomas K. Caughey Dynamics Award in recognition of his seminal contributions to the analysis of stability of delay-differential equations with application to machine-tool vibrations,robot dynamics and control, wheel shimmy, and human balancing. This AMR audio interview depicts a research and educational career grounded in a love for applied mathematics and a desire for industrial relevance. It tells of his experiences with mainstreaming the counterintuitive effects of time delay, navigating a developing historical and geopolitical context at the conclusion of the cold war, and inspiring new generations of engineers to integrate practice and theory.

A conversation with Prof. Melany Hunt from the California Institute of Technology

Prof. Melany Hunt's research concerns the dynamics of particulate materials in dry or liquid-saturated environments with application to problems in industrial and geophysical processes. This AMR audio interview explores a high-impact career in science and engineering research, education, and administration, including her perspectives on the immersion of students in undergraduate research, innovative use of online course material, and unique student-oriented curricula, as well as the potential benefits of critically revisiting accepted scientific wisdom, and the challenge of capturing the sound of booming sand dunes after a good rain.

A conversation with Prof. Julia Greer from the California Institute of Technology

Prof. Julia Greer is a highly accomplished innovator in the area of nanoscale materials science and mechanics whose work has been recognized by the Sia Nemat-Nasser ASME Early Career Award, the Materials, Metals, and Minerals Society Early Career Faculty Award, and the Society of Engineering Science Young Investigator Medal. This AMR audio interview explores her pioneering contributions to the science of architectured hierarchical micro- and nanostructures, her engagement in high-impact outreach and translational research, her growth as a professional pianist, and the difficulty of rapping about nanoscale plasticity while playing a Bach partita.

A conversation with Prof. Igor Mezic from University of California, Santa Barbara

Prof. Igor Mezic applies advanced methods of nonlinear dynamics and ergodic theory to the study of robust uncertainty management in complex networks and data assimilation in geophysical fluid dynamics. This AMR audio interview describes his path to a career of cutting-edge scientific research and engineering education, including his leadership in university-industry partnerships, his development of large-data diagnostic tools for forecasting coastal contamination from the 2010 Gulf oil spill, and his work on developing a curriculum in building energy efficiency.
