Department of Mechanical Engineering Professor Shapour Azarm recently finished his tenure as Technical Editor (TE) of the American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME) Journal of Mechanical Design (JMD). He began his five year term in 2013.

Throughout his term as TE, JMD steadily improved its Journal Impact Factor (JIF). He also led the journal to successful special issues on topics such as “Biologically Inspired Design,” “Design for Additive Manufacturing,” among others.

In his tenure, JMD also implemented a new “Editors’ Choice” paper to recognize outstanding papers, following the example of other ASME journals.

Azarm is an ASME Fellow. In 2009, he was awarded the Best Paper award at their annual Design Automation Conference. He is an operating board member of the ASME Systems and Design Group, the largest in the ASME community, and has also served as the faculty mentor for the ASME student chapter on campus.

In 2016, Azarm received the ASME Robert E. Abbott Award. The honor, established in 1978, is awarded annually to a Design Engineering Division (DED) society member who has “served the Division beyond the call of duty.” Members are nominated by friends and colleagues to the organization, and then voted on by the division board.

In addition to his work with ASME, Azarm is a senior member of the American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics (AIAA), the International Society of Multiple Criteria Decision Making (MCDM) and the International Society for Structural and Multidisciplinary Optimization (ISSMO).

Azarm received his Ph.D. from the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, in 1984. He currently serves as Director of the Design Decision Support Laboratory (DDSL).

ASME is a professional organization that helps the global engineering community to develop solutions to real world problems. The society was founded in 1880 and has a rich history of endorsing the education and advancement of technical knowledge and skills.
