Applied Mechanics Reviews Audio Interview: Prof. Igor Mezic
39 minutes, 14 seconds

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.

About This Journal

The ASME Journal of Mechanical Design (JMD) serves the broad design community as the venue for scholarly, archival research in all aspects of the design activity with emphasis on design synthesis. JMD has traditionally served the ASME Design Engineering Division and its technical committees, but it welcomes contributions from all areas of design with emphasis on synthesis. JMD communicates original contributions, primarily in the form of research articles of considerable depth but also technical briefs, design innovation papers, book reviews, and editorials.
