CITRIS is delighted to announce that Dr. Kenneth Loh, Associate Professor in the Department of Civil & Environmental Engineering, will serve as CITRIS campus director at UC Davis. Professor Loh directs the Nano-Engineering & Smart Structures Technologies (NESST) Laboratory and recently won the 2014 Outstanding Junior Faculty Award from the UC Davis College of Engineering. His research interests focus on structural monitoring using sensors and smart materials.
We would also like to take this opportunity to thank Professor Nina Amenta for her leadership and service to CITRIS over the past four years. Under her direction, CITRIS at UC Davis has increased the number of affiliated faculty and participation in the CITRIS Seed Grant program, increased connections with researchers at the UCD Medical Center, and launched UCD’s participation in the CITRIS Mobile App Challenge.
We will hold a reception at Davis in the fall to welcome Ken and thank Nina in person.
