Welcome from the Conference Co-Chairs
DescriptionThe conference co-chairs Eleni Chatzi and Mike Heroux open PASC23.
TimeMonday, June 2610:15 - 10:30 CEST
Eleni Chatzi received her PhD (2010) from the Department of Civil Engineering and Engineering Mechanics at Columbia University, New York. She is currently an Associate Professor and Chair of Structural Mechanics and Monitoring at the Institute of Structural Engineering of the Department of Civil, Environmental and Geomatic Engineering of ETH Zürich. Her research interests include the fields of Structural Health Monitoring (SHM) and structural dynamics, nonlinear system identification, and intelligent life-cycle assessment for engineered systems. She is an author of over 280 papers in peer-reviewed journals and conference proceedings, and further serves as an editor for international journals in the domains of Dynamics and SHM, including the Journal of Sound and Vibration, Structure & Infrastructure Engineering, the Journal of Structural Engineering, Mechanical Systems and Signal Processing, the Journal of Engineering Mechanics, as well as the Sections on Structural Sensing and Computational Methods in Structural Engineering of Frontiers in Built Environment. She led the recently completed ERC Starting Grant WINDMIL on the topic of "Smart Monitoring, Inspection and Life-Cycle Assessment of Wind Turbines". Her work in the domain of self-aware infrastructure was recognized with the 2020 Walter L. Huber Research prize, awarded by the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE). She is further recipient of the 2020 EASD Junior Research Prize in the area of Computational Structural Dynamics.
Mike Heroux is a Senior Scientist at Sandia National Laboratories, Director of SW Technologies for the US DOE Exascale Computing Project (ECP) and Scientist in Residence at St. John’s University. His research interests include all aspects of scalable scientific and engineering software for new and emerging parallel computing architectures. Mike founded the Trilinos, Kokkos, Mantevo, HPCG Benchmark, and Extreme-scale Scientific Software Stack (E4S) projects. Mike works in software productivity and sustainability efforts for DOE and NSF, and reproducibility initiatives for scientific publications with ACM and IEEE. He is a SIAM Fellow, ACM Distinguished Scientist, and IEEE Senior Member.
