Professor Clive Siviour Receives Award from Society for Experimental Mechanics

Professor Clive Siviour, Associate Professor in Engineering Science and Tutorial Fellow at Pembroke, has received the 2016 JSA Young Investigator Lecturer award from the Society of Experimental Mechanics (SEM) for ‘outstanding early-career contributions to experimental mechanics’.

The annual SEM Conference will be held in Orlando in June 2016, where Professor Siviour will give a keynote lecture entitled Techniques for High Rate Properties of Polymers.

Professor Siviour joined the Department of Engineering Science at the University of Oxford in 2005, initially as a Career Development Fellow, before taking up an Associate Professorship in 2008. His main interest is characterisation of materials under dynamic loading, in particular the use of time-temperature superposition to validate and replicate the response of polymers to high rate deformation using quasi-static experiments, and deriving and interpreting quantitative measurements from high -speed photography.
