Dr. Zachary Grasley has been named the new head of the Zachry Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering at Texas A&M University, effective Sept. 1.

Grasley has been the director of the Center for Infrastructure Renewal (CIR) at Texas A&M since January 2018.

“I am really excited for the opportunity to lead this dynamic department with such talented and hard-working staff, students and faculty,” he said.

While directing the CIR, he helped facilitate the initiation and continued development of the research labs and established significant collaborations with key external partners. Grasley’s research spans from fundamental studies on mechanisms and modeling to applied solutions that lead to intellectual property and commercialization.

He is a fellow of the American Society of Civil Engineers, the American Concrete Institute and the American Ceramic Society. Grasley also has held leadership and service roles in the American Concrete Institute and the American Ceramic Society.

He originally joined Texas A&M in 2006 after completing his bachelor’s degree in civil engineering at Michigan Technological University and his master’s and doctoral degrees in civil engineering at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. Grasley accepted a faculty position at Virginia Tech in 2012 and returned to Texas A&M in 2014.

Grasley holds the Zachry Chair for Construction Integration and is an inaugural Presidential Impact Fellow. He is also a professor in the materials science and engineering department.

Grasley replaces Dr. Robin Autenrieth, who served in an interim capacity for one year before becoming department head in 2014, and will return to full-time faculty in the fall. During her eight-plus-year tenure, Autenrieth has overseen the growth of the department and academic programs, increased endowments and recruited highly talented faculty. The environmental engineering degree program was developed under her direction.

“Dr. Autenrieth has done a great job and set us on the path to success,” Grasley said. “The department is on an upward trajectory and is poised for major growth in research impact, reputation and innovative education. I am looking forward to helping shepherd this growth.”
