New Vilas Early Career Award to Ramathasan Thevamaran

Written By: Caitlin Scott



Congratulations to Mechanical Engineering Associate Professor Ramathasan Thevamaran on his Vilas Early Career Award!

Prof. Thevamaran joined UW-Madison as an assistant professor in August 2017. Since then, he has emerged as a highly productive and visible leader in our mechanics research and education programs. His research focuses on advancing the fundamental knowledge of the process-structure-property-function relations in structured materials and creating innovative structured materials with extreme mechanical properties.

Fourteen professors received Vilas Faculty Early Career Investigator Awards this spring that recognize research and teaching excellence in faculty who are relatively early in their careers. The award provides flexible research funding for three years and are supported by the estate of professor, U.S. Senator and UW Regent William F. Vilas (1840-1908).
