The two winners of the Early Career Researcher Prize for outstanding contribution to the field of Applied Mechanics are as follows:
An investigation towards the Uncertainty Model calibration approaches for NASA-Langley UQ Challenge 2019
Adolphus Lye is currently a 4th-year PhD student based at the Institute of Risk and Uncertainty within the University of Liverpool. In 2018, he graduated from the National University of Singapore with a Bachelor of Science (with Honours) majoring in Physics and minoring in Mathematics. In that same year, he obtained the Singapore Nuclear Research and Safety Initiatives (SNRSI) scholarship which funded his PhD study.
Through the course of his candidature, his research interest mainly revolves around the topic of Bayesian model updating and its applications in addressing numerous applied mechanics problems. This includes reviewing the state-of-the-art developments in Bayesian model updating, addressing model uncertainty in Sequential Bayesian filtering for Structural Health Monitoring, and more recently, merging Uncertainty Quantification tools with Artificial Intelligence algorithms to provide probabilistic predictions on Nuclear material properties.
To date, he has attended numerous conferences where he has given talks discussing his research works such as the European Safety and Reliability Conference, International Conference on Nuclear Power Plants, the International Conference on Uncertainty Quantification in Computational Sciences and Engineering, and the upcoming International Conference on Modern Practice in Stress and Vibration Analysis. Details to his conference proceedings can be found on his personal webpage: https://sites.google.com/view/adolphus-lye/
Studies aside, he enjoys doing sports and is currently a member of the University's Athletics and Cross Country Team.
Higher Order Invariant Manifolds Parametrisation of Geometrically Nonlinear Structures Modelled with Large Finite Element Models
Alessandra is a Research Associate in Engineering Mathematics at the University of Bristol under the DigiTwin programme grant. She completed her PhD in Mechanical Engineering at Imperial College London in 2021. Her research aims to develop numerical and experimental tools to model, understand, and design the dynamics of nonlinear mechanical systems, with application to large scale finite element models as well as hybrid structures and digital twins.
