Distinguished YNU Professor Yozo Fujino, a Principal Investigator of the Research Unit “Safety and Resilience of Infrastructure and Infrastructure Systems,” Institute of Advanced Sciences, Yokohama National University, is the recipient of the George Winter Award of the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE), a unique award for his outstanding and innovative contributions to advancing the state-of-the-art in structural engineering as well as his demonstrated commitment of the social and artistic side of the profession.

A world-renowned expert in dynamics, control, and monitoring of bridges, with a special focus on long-span bridges under wind action, Fujino has made numerous seminal contributions to bridge dynamics, wind effects of structures, health monitoring, and passive/active control technology. He is also renowned for his research on cable vibration control, tuned mass, and tuned liquid dampers.

Fujino, who also loves painting water-color bridges, believes that one can only understand bridges by observing and painting them. Since 1993 he has organized and regularly offered a special class on the painting of bridges for civil engineering students at the University of Tokyo.
