Maury Nussbaum, professor, assistant department head, and graduate program director in the Department of Industrial and Systems Engineering in the College of Engineering at Virginia Tech, has been named as Fellow of the American Society of Biomechanics (ASB).
According to the agency's website, ASB created the status of Fellow in 2011 to recognize the professional achievement and service of the top members of the Society and to encourage continued service to the Society in a leadership role.
A formal induction ceremony was held during the ASB Annual Conference in Rochester, NY on August 11, 2018. Nussbaum was inducted along with 2 other colleagues, Dr. Elizabeth Hsiao-Wecksler from the University of Illinois and Dr. Andrew Karduna from the University of Oregon. The society now has 37 Fellows after Saturday's induction ceremony.
Nussbaum also holds the title of Fellow in the International Ergonomics Association (elected 2015), Institute of Industrial Engineers (2014), American Industrial Hygiene Association (2013), and the Institute of Ergonomics and Human Factors (2009).
Nussbaum received his bachelor’s degrees, master’s degree, and a Ph.D. from the University of Michigan at Ann Arbor.
Biomechanics represents the broad interplay between mechanics and biological systems. The American Society of Biomechanics (ASB) was founded in 1977 to encourage and foster the exchange of information and ideas among biomechanists working in different disciplines and to facilitate the development of biomechanics as a basic and applied science.
ASB has a membership of approximately 850 academic researchers, clinicians, scientists, students, and industry members working to solve basic and applied problems in the realm of biomechanics and to improve understanding of the workings of biological systems. ASB members are organized into five primary discipline categories: biological sciences, exercise and sports science, health sciences, ergonomics and human factors, and engineering and applied science.
