He has Directed 22 PhD?s as well as 150 M.S. Students and prior to teaching at Michigan State he held positions at Oklahoma State University, University of Wisconsin, Marquette University, Technion in Israel, and a MSU summer program at Cambridge University, England. He is a Founding Member of the American Society of Biomechanics, a Charter Member or the Society of Engineering Science, a Member of the International Society of Biomechanics, the American Society of Mechanical Engineering, and the American Association for the Advancement of Science. Dr. Soutas-Little has been the recipient of the Western Electric Award for Teaching Excellence in Engineering in 1970, the Goldberg Chair in 1982, the Distinguished Faculty Award ? Michigan State University in 1995, named a Fellow of the American Society of Mechanical Engineers in 1996, received the Withrow Teaching Excellence Award in 1997, the Withrow Distinguished Scholar Award in 1999, as well as receiving many research contracts and grants between 1962 and 1999. His research interests include Biomechanics, Dynamics, Applied Mathematics, Elasticity, and Continuum Mechanics.

Daniel J. Inman received his Ph.D. from Michigan State University in Mechanical Engineering in 1980 and is the Director of the Center for Intelligent Material Systems and Structures and the G.R. Goodson Professor in the Department of Mechanical Engineering at Virginia Tech. Since 1980, he has published six books (on vibration, control, statics, and dynamics), eight software manuals, 20 book chapters, over 195 journal papers and 380 proceedings papers, given 34 keynote or plenary lectures, graduated 45 Ph.D. students and supervised more than 65 MS degrees. He is a Fellow of the American Academy of Mechanics (AAM), the American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME), the International Institute of Acoustics and Vibration (IIAV), and the American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics (AIAA). He is currently Technical Editor of the Journal of Intelligent Material Systems and Structures (1999- ), Technical Editor of the Shock and Vibration Digest (1998- ), and Technical Editor of the journal Shock and Vibration (1999- ).
