Karen Willcox, Director of the Oden Institute for Computational Engineering and Sciences, received simultaneous awards at the 17th U.S. National Congress on Computational Mechanics hosted by the U.S. Association for Computational Mechanics (USACM), held July 23-27 in Albuquerque, New Mexico.
Willcox, who is a professor of Aerospace Engineering and Engineering Mechanics in the Cockrell School of Engineering, received the J. Tinsley Oden Medal and was selected as a Fellow of the USACM.
“To receive any honor from a professional society is humbling. It’s a very special honor to receive one bearing the name of J. Tinsley Oden,” said Willcox.
“This award reflects the amazing students, postdocs, and collaborators I’ve worked with over the past two decades. Even though I’m receiving the medal, without all those collaborations I wouldn’t be here,” Willcox added.
