Clarkson University Prof Appointed Associate Editor of Structural Engineering Journal

Clarkson University Associate Professor of Civil & Environmental Engineering Narutoshi Nakata has been appointed an associate editor of the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) Journal of Structural Engineering.

Narutoshi NakataAs an associate editor, Nakata will manage the peer review process for papers about structural control and experimental methods for the next three years.

The Journal of Structural Engineering is one of the oldest and most respected periodicals in the field, with a history of reporting on fundamental knowledge that advances the state-of-the-art and state-of-the-practice in structural engineering. The ASCE represents more than 150,000 members of the civil engineering profession in 177 countries.

Nakata's research interests are in experimental methods in structural engineering, earthquake engineering and bridge engineering, smart structures, and structural dynamics. He has worked on the development of hybrid simulation for structural systems, and plans to expand his research to multi-hazard, multi-physics hybrid simulation of large and complex systems for civil infrastructure.

Nakata has received external research funds that include more than $1.6 million from the National Science Foundation for three multi-year projects. In 2010, he received the National Science Foundation Faculty Early Career Development Award.

Before joining the Clarkson faculty in 2014, Nakata had been an assistant professor in the Department of Civil Engineering at Johns Hopkins University. He received his Ph.D. in civil engineering from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.

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. 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 more than 50 rigorous programs of study in engineering, business, arts, sciences, education and the health professions, 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.
