An internationally recognized leader in the fields of vibrations, structural dynamics and nonlinear dynamics, Dr. Pierre has made research contributions in numerous areas of mechanical and aerospace engineering, including the dynamics of complex large-scale structural systems, and has been recognized for his pioneering work on mode localization in disordered structures.
Dr. Pierre has received extensive research support from General Electric, NASA, General Motors, the National Science Foundation, the Air Force Office of Scientific Research, the U.S. Army and Pratt & Whitney Canada, among other industry and government sponsors.
He authored or co-authored more than 120 research articles for refereed journals. Dr. Pierre is a fellow of The American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME) and in 2005 received ASME's N. O. Myklestad Award for his work in vibration localization.
According to the NAI, election as an NAI fellow is a high professional distinction accorded to academic inventors who have demonstrated “a prolific spirit of innovation in creating or facilitating outstanding inventions that have made a tangible impact on quality of life, economic development and welfare of society.”
2016 NAI Fellows will be inducted at the Sixth Annual Conference of the NAI on April 6, 2017, at the John F. Kennedy Presidential Library & Museum in Boston.
