Elasticity, Geometry and Statistics Lab logoPedro Reis lab members postdoctoral associate Arnaud Lazarus and graduate student Bastiaan Florijn won the best poster prize at the “Freund Symposium: Future Directions in Mechanics Research” held June 3 at Brown University. The title of the poster was “Geometry-induced rigidity in pressurized elastic shells.” “Given that the conference focused entirely on solid mechanics and that a large number of the leading experts in our community were present, this had a very special meaning for our lab,” said Reis, whose lab is called the Elasticity, Geometry and Statistics Laboratory.
