Shigeo Saimoto Raised in British Columbia, Shig to his family and friends, graduated from the University of British Columbia with a B.A.Sc. in Engineering Physics, followed by M.A.Sc. in Metallurgical Engineering. After a summer studentship at CANMET in Ottawa, he proceeded to Massachusetts Institute of Technology for his Ph.D. in Metallurgy. He returned to Ottawa, Canada on a National Research Council Fellowship at the Division of Physics. After two years, he joined the Faculty of Engineering at Queen’s University at Kingston, Ontario.
He is currently Professor Emeritus in the Department of Mechanical and Materials Engineering. His current interest is in the integration of basic crystal plasticity principles with metal fabrication processes. So his studies, after a long journey in crystal physics, are returning to his roots in metal fabrication which he acquired at the Metals Processing Laboratory at MIT. He has been an NSERC grant holder throughout his tenure at Queen’s University and also a grantee of the Ontario Centre for Materials Research. [/author]
