CaSE PhD students Preetam Tarafder, Saikat Dan, and Ozge Ozbayram won prizes at the student competitions during the 2022 Engineering Mechanics Institute (EMI) Conference. The conference, held on the JHU campus from May 31 – June 3, 2022, aims to bring together scholars from around the world to exchange and disseminate the most recent developments in engineering mechanics across wide-ranging fields related to the discipline of Civil Engineering understood in the broadest sense, including industry applications of engineering mechanics.
Awards were announced at the banquet on June 3rd. All three students are advised by Prof. Somnath Ghosh.
