The NAE welcomed the classes of 2020, 2021 and 2022 at a ceremony in Washington D.C. during the organization’s first in-person annual meeting in three years due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Being elected to the NAE is one of the highest professional distinctions in engineering and recognizes individuals who have made outstanding contributions to the field of engineering, from research to practice to education. Kramer was elected for “contributions to geotechnical earthquake engineering, including liquefaction, seismic stability and seismic site response.”
