Muliana receives Texas A&M Engineering Experiment Station faculty fellowship

Anastasia MulianaDr. Anastasia Muliana, professor in the Department of Mechanical Engineering at Texas A&M University, was selected as a Texas A&M Engineering Experiment Station (TEES) Faculty Fellow. The principal purpose of the award is to recognize long-term outstanding research performance. Muliana will be formally recognized at an awards ceremony later this year.

The TEES Fellows program has provided the opportunity to annually recognize outstanding engineering faculty for more than 30 years. TEES is an engineering research agency of the State of Texas and a member of The Texas A&M University System. Texas A&M Engineering faculty hold joint appointments as TEES researchers.

Muliana’s research focuses on nonlinear and time dependent constitutive material modeling, thermal stress analyses, micromechanics of composite, analyses of heterogeneous materials subject to coupled thermal, electrical, and mechanical stimuli, time-dependent degradation of polymers and composites, nonlinear analyses of flexible and compliant structures activated by non-mechanical (electric field, light, solvent, and thermal) stimuli, large-scale nonlinear structural analyses, numerical and finite element methods.

She received her bachelor's degree in civil engineering from the Bandung Institute of Technology in 1997, a master's degree in civil engineering from the Georgia Institute of Technology in 1999 and a Ph.D. in structural engineering and mechanics from the Georgia Institute of Technology in 2004. She joined the mechanical engineering department in 2004.
