Clarkson University Associate Professor of Mechanical and Aeronautical Engineering Pier Marzocca has been named an Associate Fellow of the American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics (AIAA), the world’s largest society dedicated to the global aerospace profession.
Associate fellows have accomplished or led important engineering or scientific work, or have otherwise made outstanding contributions to the arts, sciences, or technology of aeronautics or astronautics, according to the AIAA.
Associate fellow inductees must have at least 12 years of professional experience and be recommended by a minimum of three associate fellows. Marzocca is one of the new associate fellows who will be honored in January at the 51st AIAA Aerospace Sciences Meeting in Texas.
Marzocca received his Ph.D. in aeronautical and aerospace engineering from Politecnico di Torino in Italy. He is a deputy editor in chief of the International Journal of Aeronautical and Space Science, and associate editor of Journal of Thermal Stresses and Journal of Aerospace Engineering.
His research interest is in the field of aerospace and wind energy and he specializes in multi-physics modeling and characterization of advanced materials and structures, dealing with the interactions among advanced structures and fluids, magnetic, electric, and thermal fields.
Clarkson University launches leaders into the global economy. One in five alumni already leads as a CEO, VP or equivalent senior executive of a company. Located just outside the Adirondack Park in Potsdam, N.Y., Clarkson is a nationally recognized research university for undergraduates with select graduate programs in signature areas of academic excellence directed toward the world’s pressing issues. Through 50 rigorous programs of study in engineering, business, arts, sciences and health sciences, the entire learning-living community spans boundaries across disciplines, nations and cultures to build powers of observation, challenge the status quo, and connect discovery and engineering innovation with enterprise.
