The award recognizes individuals with a distinguished record of research, accomplishment and publication in areas of computational mechanics and demonstrated support of the IACM through membership and participation in the association, its meetings and activities. 

Paulino accepted the award during a special Award Session during the 10th World Congress on Computational Mechanics in São Paulo, Brazil, on July 12.
Paulino is the Donald Biggar Willett Professor in Engineering. He has taught graduate and undergraduate classes in mechanics of materials, fracture mechanics, plates and shells, continuum mechanics, tensor analysis, methods of structural analysis, finite element method, and boundary element method. He has research interests in structural analysis, computational mechanics, functionally graded materials, experimental methods, constitutive modeling of engineering materials, multiscale phenomena, high-order continuum, fracture and damage mechanics, structural dynamics, solution adaptive techniques, inverse problems in mechanics, sensitivity analysis and optimization, and topology design of structures.

He is a member of the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE), the American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME), the American Society of Engineering Education (ASEE), the American Academy of Mechanics (AAM), the International Association for Boundary Element Methods (IABEM), and the International Society for Boundary Element Methods (ISBE). He is a member of Executive Committee of the IABEM, the Computational Mechanics committee of the ASCE Engineering Mechanics Division, the Committee on Computational and Applied Mechanics (CONCAM) of ASME, and the International Advisory Committee on Functionally Graded Materials (IACFGM). He serves on the editorial board of some international journals.
