Associate Professor, School of Civil and Environmental Engineering
Professor Amekudzi's research, teaching and professional activities focus on civil infrastructure decision making to promote sustainable development. Dr. Amekudzi directs the Infrastructure Research Group (IRG) at Georgia Tech, a research group focused on the study, development and application of systems methods for managing civil infrastructure assets for sustainable development.
Assistant Professor of Bioengineering
Dr. Dixon began at Georgia Tech in August 2009 as an Assistant Professor in the Woodruff School of Mechanical Engineering. Previously, he was a staff scientist at Ecole Polytechnique Federal de Lausanne in the Laboratory of Cancer and Lymphatic Bioengineering. Dr. Dixon received his B.S. in 2001 and Ph.D. in 2006, both in biomedical engineering from Texas A&M University. His current research interests focus on the development of imaging and tissue engineering platforms for studying the interplay between by biomechanics and function in lymphatic physiology in healthy and disease states.
Associate Professor, Joint Appointment in the School of Biomedical Engineering and Mechanical Engineering
Dr. Gleason received his Ph.D. from Texas A&M University and his B.S. and M.S. from the University of Florida. Dr. Gleason's current research interest is in soft tissue biomechanics and growth and remodeling, with particular emphasis on native vascular tissues and tissue engineered constructs. Two key aims of his research are to develop mathematical theories for soft tissue growth and remodeling that allow for the incorporation of observations made at multiple length scales, and to develop novel experimental models to test the underlying assumptions of theoretical simulations that allow for parallel observations at different length scales.
Professor of Aerospace Engineering
Dr. Dewey Hodges became Professor of Aerospace Engineering at Georgia Tech in 1986. From 1970–1986 he was a research scientist at the U.S. Army Aeroflightdynamics Directorate, located at Ames Research Center. During those years he also served as a Lecturer at Stanford University and in 1984 was a guest research scientist at the DLR in Braunschweig, Germany. Dr. Hodges has published four books and over 330 technical papers in journals and conference proceedings in the fields of rotorcraft dynamics, structural dynamics, aeroelasticity, structural mechanics and stability, computational mechanics, and optimal control.
Assistant Professor, School of Economics
Dr. Ruth Uwaifo Oyelere is a research fellow at the Institute for the study of Labor (IZA) Bonn Germany. Dr. Ruth Uwaifo Oyelere holds a Ph.D. from the University of California, Berkeley. Her research interests fall into four main areas: development economics, labor economics, education economics and population economics. Her published research can be found in leading economic journals like American Economic Review, Journal of Development Economics, Small Business Economics and Journal of African Economies. Dr. Uwaifo Oyelere is the faculty adviser for the IJM Georgia Tech students chapter and the African Students Association.
Associate Professor in the School of Electrical and Computer Engineering
Vincent J. Mooney III (Senior Member, IEEE and Member, ACM) received the B.S. degree from Yale University in 1991, where he double majored in Electrical Engineering and Computer Science. He received an M.S. degree in E.E. from Stanford University in 1994, an M.A. degree in Philosophy from Stanford in 1997, and the Ph.D. degree in E.E. from Stanford in June of 1998. His research interests include computer-aided design of integrated circuits with a particular emphasis on hardware-software codesign, security, reconfigurable computing, power-aware and probabilistic architectures and circuits.
Professor in the School of Chemistry and Biochemistry
C. David Sherrill is a professor in the School of Chemistry and Biochemistry in the College of Sciences at Georgia Tech. He received his B.S. degree in Chemistry from MIT in 1992. He earned a Ph.D. in computational quantum chemistry in 1996, working as a National Science Foundation (NSF) Graduate Fellow at the University of Georgia. He was an NSF Postdoctoral Fellow at the University of California, Berkeley, and joined the Georgia Tech faculty in 1999.
