Dr. Monika Ivantysynova was the Maha Fluid Power Systems Professor in Agricultural and Biological Engineering and Mechanical Engineering and the Director of the Maha Fluid Power Research Center at Purdue University. Dr. Ivantysynova received her Ph.D. from Technical University Bratislava. Dr. Ivantysynova's work has been recognized with several awards, including the 2016 Morrill Award, ASME 2015 Robert E. Koski Medal, ASME Fellow, the Purdue Innovator Hall of Fame, SAE Fellow in 2014, and Backe Medal in 2012. In 2017, she was selected to receive an honorary doctorate degree from the Lappeenranta University of Technology (LUT) in Finland for her valuable contribution to the development of mechanical engineering research at LUT and her leadership of organizations that evaluate Finnish mechanical engineering research. Her research focused on fluid power system design, modeling, multi-domain simulation, energy saving actuators, advanced transmission concepts, drive line control, computer based optimization of positive displacement pumps and motors, smart structures, and optimization of tribological systems by surface modification in micro- and nanoscale.
