Dr. Vinayak Krishnamurthy, assistant professor in the J. Mike Walker ’66 Department of Mechanical Engineering at Texas A&M University, was presented the 2021 American Society of Mechanical Engineers Young Engineer Award from the Computers and Information in Engineering division.

“Receiving the Young Engineer Award marks an important event in my academic career,” said Krishnamurthy. “I am happy to see the work of my research group recognized by my colleagues in the broader research community. As a result, the award will help make my work visible to a wide range of potential collaborators toward many new research directions.”

This esteemed national award recognizes up-and-coming researchers making outstanding developments on computers and information in engineering.

Krishnamurthy’s research interests include computer-aided product design through fundamental advances in geometric modeling, human-computer interaction and the application of artificial intelligence to promote creative thinking in design. Additionally, he has made significant contributions in intelligent user interfaces, augmented and virtual reality, and geometric computing for designing complex 3D shapes.

He was officially presented the award at the 2021 International Design Engineering Technical Conferences & Computers and Information in Engineering Conference.
