Applied Mechanics Reviews Audio Interview: Prof. Katia Bertoldi
48 minutes, 04 seconds

Prof. Katia Bertoldi is the recipient of the Thomas J.R. Hughes Young Investigator Award from ASME and a Journal of Applied Mechanics Paper Award, both in 2014. This AMR audio interview explores her professional development, experiences, and insights as a student and later academic researcher and mentor, and describes her contributions to the accidental and purposeful invention of engineered materials with local structural properties that govern macroscopic material response, with applications to energy dissipation, energy focusing, and wave guiding.

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.
