Congratulations to Associate Professor S.K. Gupta (ME/ISR), who has been elected a Fellow of the American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME).
The citation reads:
"Dr. Satyandra K. Gupta has made significant contributions to the field of computer aided design and manufacturing by incorporating application specific intelligence into geometric reasoning algorithms. An author of over one hundred fifty technical papers in journals and conferences, he has given more than forty invited seminars throughout the world on the topics related to computer aided design and manufacturing. He currently serves as Associate Editor for ASME Journal of Computing and Information Science in Engineering and is a past chair of ASME Design for Manufacturing technical committee. A recipient of fifteen recognition awards, he received the Presidential Early Career Award for Scientists and Engineers in 2001 from President George Bush for his outstanding contributions."
The PECASE Award mentioned in the citation was for Gupta's work in developing a new molding process and decision support tool for manufacturing multi-material parts. The PECASE is the highest honor given by the U.S. government to outstanding scientists and engineers in the early stages of establishing their research careers. Only 20 NSF-supported PECASEs are awarded each year.
Gupta has received other prestigious honors in his career. He was an ONR Young Investigator (2000), won the Society of Manufacturing Engineers' Robert W. Galvin Outstanding Young Manufacturing Engineer Award (2000), received an NSF CAREER Award for "Automated Design of Multi-Piece Molds?A Step towards Manufacturing of Geometrically Complex Heterogeneous Objects" (2001) and was given ISR's Oustanding Faculty Award for 2000-2001.
