Alejandro Martinez was awarded the 2022 Arthur Casagrande Professional Development Award (nominated by the soil properties and modeling committee) for pioneering research using multi-scale interdisciplinary techniques that have advanced the emerging field of bio-inspired geotechnics, characterization of unconventional materials, and customization of soil-structure interfaces for civil infrastructure and site characterization tools. Congratulations to him for all of his hard work and accomplishments!
Arthur Casagrande Professional Development Award was established by the Geotechnical Engineering Division (now the Geo-Institute) of ASCE as a memorial to the outstanding contributions of Arthur Casagrande, Hon.M.ASCE, to the teaching, research, and practice of geotechnical engineering. The award is funded by gifts from the many students, colleagues, and friends of Arthur Casagrande. The award was established to provide professional development opportunities for outstanding young practitioners, researchers, and teachers of geotechnical engineering.
