Biography

James A. Nemes earned his M.Sc. and D.Sc. from The George Washington University and his B.Eng. from the University of Maryland. Dr. Nemes was an associate professor of mechanical engineering and William Dawson Scholar at McGill University in Montreal, Canada, where he also held a number of administrative positions, including interim dean of graduate and postdoctoral studies. Dr. Nemes' research focuses on material behavior, particularly the development of constitutive models to describe deformation and fracture. His results have been published in more than 100 articles in journals and conference proceedings. Dr. Nemes has also held a number of positions in industry and government, including research engineer at the U.S. Naval Research Laboratory in Washington, D.C.
