Marco Amabili - Biography#

Professor Amabili holds the Canada Research Chair (Tier 1) in Vibrations and Fluid-Structure Interaction in the Department of Mechanical Engineering, McGill University. His exceptional research contributions span several areas of dynamics, solid mechanics and fluid-structure interaction. In particular, he is the author of over 480 scientific papers in vibrations and applied mechanics, 220 of which are published in prestigious refereed international journals, including the very high-impact and multidisciplinary Nature Communications and Physical Review X.

In 2008 Professor Amabili wrote the impressive monograph Nonlinear Vibrations and Stability of Shells and Plates published by Cambridge University Press. For this book he received the

Worcester Reed Warner Medal of the ASME (American Society of Mechanical Engineers) in 2020; this medal was established in 1930 to honor seminal contribution to the permanent literature in engineering. His second monograph, again for Cambridge University Press, appeared in 2018.

In the last three decades, Professor Amabili has made tremendous contributions to the progress of knowledge of nonlinear vibrations of shells and plates made of traditional, advanced composite and soft materials.

Professor Amabili is the Contributing Editor of the International Journal of Non-linear Mechanics (Elsevier), Associate Editor of Journal of Fluids and Structures (Elsevier), and Contributing Editor of Mechanics of Advanced Materials and Structures. He was Associate Editor of Applied Mechanics Reviews (ASME) and Journal of Vibration and Acoustics (ASME).

Dr. Amabili was the recipient in 2015 of the Christophe Pierre Research Excellence Award by the Faculty of Engineering, McGill University. He was elected Fellow of the Royal Society of Canada, Foreign Member of Academia Europaea, Member the European Academy of Sciences and Arts, Fellow of the Canadian Academy of Engineering and Member of the European Academy of Sciences. He has been selected to deliver the 2019 Koiter Lecture of the of the Dutch Research School on Engineering Mechanics. The Koiter lecture honors researchers who have made profound contributions to the field of Engineering Mechanics, and it has a rich history. Amabili is one of the five members of the Executive Committee of Applied Mechanics Division of the ASME and serves in the awards committee. Amabili is also the chair of the Canadian National Committee for IUTAM (International Union of Theoretical and Applied Mechanics).
