Jamshid Ghaboussi is Emeritus Professor in Civil and Environmental Engineering at University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. He received his doctoral degree from University of California at Berkeley. He has over 40 years of teaching and research experience in computational mechanics and soft computing with applications in structural engineering, geo-mechanics and bio-medical engineering. He has published extensively in these areas and is the inventor in five patents, mainly in the application of soft computing and computational mechanics. He is the co-author of books Numerical Methods in Computational Mechanics (CRC Press) and Nonlinear Computational Solid Mechanics (CRC Press). In recent years he has been conducting research on complex systems and has co-authored a book on Understanding Systems: A Grand Challenge for 21st Century Engineering (World Scientific Publishing).
