Applied Mechanics Reviews Audio Interview: Prof. Kenneth Liechti
44 minutes, 53 seconds

Prof. Ken Liechti of University of Texas at Austin is an award-winning authority on the mechanics of interfaces, describing bonding, unbonding, and crack propagation using innovative experimental techniques with applications to thin film mechanics and graphene transfer. Pipe Major Emeritus of the Silver Thistle Pipes and Drums band out of Austin, Liechti speaks in this interview of his commitment to carrying on the traditions of his Scottish heritage, of building unique devices for uncovering the hidden science of interfacial fracture, and of his experiences articulating the value of mechanics in interdisciplinary collaborations.

Applied Mechanics Reviews (AMR) is an international review journal that serves as a premier venue for dissemination of material across all subdisciplines of applied mechanics and engineering science, including fluid and solid mechanics, heat transfer, dynamics and vibration, and applications. AMR provides an archival repository for state-of-the-art and retrospective survey articles and reviews of research areas and curricular developments. The journal invites commentary on research and education policy in different countries. The journal also invites original tutorial and educational material in applied mechanics targeting non-specialist audiences, including undergraduate and K-12 students.
