Professor George Deodatis received the 2024 EMI Alfred M. Freudenthal Medal for “excellence in developing probabilistic methods in civil engineering and engineering mechanics, emphasizing simulation of stochastic processes and fields to model loads and system properties, and on quantifying the effect of input and system uncertainties on the random system response.”

The Medal commemorates the legacy of Alfred M. Freudenthal. Appointed a Professor of Civil Engineering at Columbia University in 1949, Freudenthal's pioneering work laid the foundation for the field of structural reliability, earning him the title of the "Father" of this discipline.

The award consists of a bronze medal that will be conferred at a ceremony during this year's EMI Conference in Chicago, May 28-31.

Let's extend our congratulations to Professor Deodatis for receiving this prestigious award!
