Leonard Bond will become the new Director of the Center for Nondestructive Evaluation (CNDE) and a Professor in the Department of Aerospace Engineering at Iowa State University, effective July 1.

Bond comes to Iowa State from the Pacific Northwest National Laboratory where he served as a Laboratory Fellow since 2000. Bond has focused his career on nondestructive evaluation and related topics and has worked in academia, as a consultant, and in government laboratories.

Sharron Quisenberry, Iowa State’s Vice President for Research and Economic Development, said she was impressed with Bond’s prior experience, his academic credentials and his international reputation in advanced diagnostics/NDE and prognostics. George Kraus, IPRT Director, believes that Dr. Bond’s vision for the future of CNDE, coupled with his impressive track record, make him an outstanding choice for the Center.

Bond was a Research Professor at the University of Colorado, Boulder from 1997-1998, a Chief Scientist at the University of Denver Research Institute and Research Professor in the Department of Engineering at the University of Denver from 1994-1998. He also served as a Lecturer and Reader in Ultrasonics at the University College London from 1979-1992.

Bond earned his Ph.D. in physics from The City University in London in 1978.

Bond is a Fellow of the Institute of Physics (UK) and the American Association for the Advancement of Science.

The Center for Nondestructive Evaluation was established in 1985 as a NSF Industry/University Cooperative Research Center, with its roots in the Engineering Mechanics program that is now part of the Aerospace Engineering department. “NDE has a long and illustrious history at Iowa State University, and many distinguished faculty have contributed to its success”, said Richard Wlezien, chair of Aerospace Engineering. The Center has a long history of working with industry to provide cost-effective tools and solutions which address relevant problems for a variety of industrial sectors. Dr. Bond will provide leadership to an interdisciplinary team in the further development and implementation of theoretical and experimental tools for NDE and prognostic applications in the transportation, energy and infrastructure communities, working with faculty, professional scientists, and students in the Colleges of Engineering and Liberal Arts and Sciences. “IPRT and the Center for NDE team are excited by the energy and vision for growth that Dr. Bond has expressed. We look forward to his arrival in July and expanded collaborations with industry and university partnerships, building on the success of the prior developments”, says Lisa Brasche, CNDE Associate Director.
