Congratulations to Prof. Valeria La Saponara on her election as ASME Fellow.

Her specific citation reads as follows:

For outstanding accomplishments in education and experimental research of fiber-reinforced polymer composites, including investigations on the durability of these materials under impact, complex service loads, and the development of various structural health monitoring methods for composites based on electrical methods and ultrasonics wave propagation. Her work has been incorporated in undergraduate and graduate classes, in several training demos for undergraduate engineering student teams, and in numerous outreach events for elementary and middle school children.

Please congratulate Valeria when you see her!
