Speaker Information

Philip V. Bayly is the Lee Hunter Distinguished Professor and Chair of the Department of Mechanical Engineering & Materials Science in the McKelvey School of Engineering. Bayly joined the faculty at Washington University in 1993 and has served as Department Chair since 2008. 

Bayly’s research involves the study of nonlinear dynamic phenomena in mechanical and biological systems with a focus on imaging waves and oscillations to understand the mechanics of cells and biological tissues. His research has been funded by the National Science Foundation, the Whitaker Foundation, and the National Institutes of Health.  

In 1996, Bayly received the prestigious Faculty Early Career Development (CAREER) award from the National Science Foundation and the Richard Skalak Award for Best Paper from the Journal of Biomechanical Engineering in 2013. In recognition of his commitment to the intellectual and personal development of Washington University students, Dr. Bayly received the Founder’s Day Distinguished Faculty Award in 2014.  

Bayly earned a bachelor of arts degree in engineering science from Dartmouth College, a master of science in engineering from Brown University, and a doctorate in mechanical engineering from Duke University. Before pursuing his doctorate, he worked as a research engineer for the Shriners Hospitals and as a design engineer for Pitney Bowes.
