Mary C Boyce, Dean of The Fu Foundation School of Engineering and Applied Science at Columbia University in the City of New York, has accepted an appointment to the Board of Directors of Altair, Troy, Michigan, USA.

In addition to her role as Dean at Columbia, Boyce is the Morris A and Alma Schapiro Professor of Engineering. Prior to joining the university, she reportedly served on the faculty of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) for over twenty-five years, leading the Mechanical Engineering Department from 2008–2013.

“Mary Boyce’s deep technical prowess and successful track record of leadership are clearly aligned with Altair’s culture and goals,” stated James Scapa, Founder, Chairman, and CEO at Altair. “Having her join our Board of Directors is an exciting complement to our initiatives to support our customers in developing smart connected products, machine learning, specialised material design and digital twin technology.”

Boyce’s research focuses on materials and mechanics, particularly in the areas of multi-scale and nonlinear mechanics of polymers and soft composites, and her work has been documented in over 170 archival journal articles spanning materials, mechanics, and physics. She has been widely recognised for her scholarly contributions, being elected as a fellow of the American Society of Mechanical Engineers, the American Academy of Arts and Sciences, and the National Academy of Engineering.

Speaking on her appointment to the Altair Board of Directors, Boyce stated, “I am pleased to be part of the Altair team and very optimistic about the role engineering and simulation technology will play in creating a better future for all people.”
