Professor Anne Kiremidjian has been elected to the 2021 Class of New Members and International Member of the National Academy of Engineers.
Election to the National Academy of Engineering is among the highest professional distinctions accorded to an engineer. Academy membership honors those who have made outstanding contributions to "engineering research, practice, or education, including, where appropriate, significant contributions to the engineering literature" and to "the pioneering of new and developing fields of technology, making major advancements in traditional fields of engineering, or developing/implementing innovative approaches to engineering education." Election of new NAE members is the culmination of a yearlong process. The ballot is set in December and the final vote for membership occurs during January.
Individuals in the newly elected class will be formally inducted during the NAE's annual meeting on Oct. 3, 2021. Professor Kiremidjian's entry reads:
Kiremidjian, Anne S., professor, Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering, Stanford University, Stanford, Calif. For research and dissemination of probabilistic seismic hazard methods and mentoring.
