Leszek DemkowiczLeszek Demkowicz, aerospace engineering professor at The University of Texas at Austin, was named the recipient of the 2009 Computational and Applied Sciences Award by the United States Association for Computational Mechanics (USACM). The association recognized his “pioneering work in both the theory and implementation of hp-Finite Element Methods, its application to numerous areas of computational mechanics, and in particular computational electromagnetics." Demkowicz will be honored at a dinner during the 10th United States National Congress on Computational Mechanics this July in Columbus, Ohio.

Demkowicz holds the Chevron Centennial Fellowship in Engineering No. 2.
