Congratulations to UM Aerospace Professor Carlos Cesnik, who has been awarded the 2017-18 Monroe-Brown Foundation Research Excellence Award!

The College of Engineering Honors and Awards Committee presents this award to faculty who have “demonstrated sustained excellence in research and related scholarly activities.” Professor Cesnik is Director of the Active Aeroelasticity and Structures Research Laboratory at the University of Michigan (2001-present) and Director of the Airbus-University of Michigan Center for Aero-Servo-Elasticity for Very Flexible Aircraft (2017-present). He is a leading researcher in nonlinear aeroelasticity, flight dynamics of very flexible aircraft, aero-thermo-servo-elastic hypersonic vehicle simulation, smart structures, structural mechanics, and structural health monitoring, having published over 300 archival journal papers, conference papers, and technical reports in those areas. Professor Cesnik is also active in the research community within the American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics (AIAA), for which he is Director of the AIAA Aerospace Design and Structures Group (ADSG) until Spring 2018.

Professor Cesnik expresses his gratitude for the Monroe-Brown Award: “I know how excellent our College of Engineering faculty is, and being selected to receive the Monroe-Brown Foundation Research Excellence Award makes me feel very honored and humbled.” The award will be presented at the Faculty Honors Dinner Dance on Saturday, March 24th, 2018.
