Vivek Shenoy ProfessorUniversity of PennsylvaniaVivek Shenoy is the Eduardo D. Glandt President’s Distinguished Professor in the School of Engineering and Applied Sciences at the University of Pennsylvania with appointments in the Departments of Materials Science and Engineering, Bioengineering and Mechanical Engineering. Shenoy is the principal investigator and director of the NSF-funded Science and Technology Center for Engineering Mechnobiology established in 2016. Dr. Shenoy's research focuses on developing theoretical concepts and numerical methods to understand the basic principles that control the behavior of both engineering and biological systems. He has used rigorous analytical methods and multiscale modeling techniques, ranging from atomistic density functional theory to continuum methods, to gain physical insight into a myriad of problems in materials science and biomechanics. Dr. Shenoy's honors include a National Science Foundation CAREER Award (2000), the Richard and Edna Solomon Assistant Professorship (2002-2005) and the Rosenbaum Visiting Fellowship from the Isaac Newton Institute of Mathematical Science, University of Cambridge and the George H. Heilmeier Faculty Award for Excellence in Research (2019). He serves as the editor of the Biophysical Journal and is a fellow of the American Institute for Medical and Biological Engineering (AIMBE).
