Aditi Chattopadhyay to Receive an Award From the American Society of Mechanical Engineers

Aditi Chattopadhyay, a Regents Professor of mechanical and aerospace engineering in the Ira A. Fulton Schools of Engineering at Arizona State University, has been selected to receive the 2023 Adaptive Structures and Material Systems Award from the American Society of Mechanical Engineers. The award, which recognizes significant contributions to the sciences and technologies associated with adaptive structures and materials systems, honors the lifetime achievements of a senior researcher and their sustained impact in the field. Dr. Chattopadhyay will be recognized in an award ceremony at the annual ASME Smart Materials, Adaptive Structures, and Intelligent Systems conference in September.

Dr. Chattopadhyay joined the faculty at Arizona State University in 1990. Her current research includes work for the U.S. military, NASA, and the U.S. Department of Energy. It focuses on multiscale modeling, structural health monitoring, and damage prognosis as well as developing sensing systems, autonomous materials capable of performing complex functions in response to changes in the environment, and composite materials that can withstand high temperatures.

“I’m deeply honored to receive this award and am very grateful for this recognition by my peers,” Dr. Chattopadhyay said. “There was a time when the concepts of smart materials and adaptive structures were dismissed as impossible, so the recognition is especially meaningful.”

Professor Chattopadhyay is a graduate of the Indian Institute of Technology in Kharagpur. She holds a master’s degree and a Ph.D. in aerospace engineering from the Georgia Institute of Technology.
