New Faculty Spotlight: Andrew T. Myers
Andrew T. Myers joined the department in August 2011 as an Assistant Professor. Prof. Myers' research interests are centered on a combination of multi-scale experimental testing, computational simulation, and probabilistic modeling of physical systems. He earned a Ph.D. in Structural Engineering and Geomechanics in 2009 at Stanford University, and a B.S. in Civil Engineering at Johns Hopkins University in 2004. Before his arrival, Prof. Myers was employed for an engineering consulting group within AIR Worldwide, a natural catastrophe risk company in San Francisco, California. While at AIR Worldwide, he published a white paper on the seismic vulnerability of wind turbines. Prof. Myers' doctoral research at Stanford focused on understanding the mechanism of ultra low cycle fatigue (ULCF) in structural steel, an issue that is critical for earthquake engineering of steels structures. Prof. Myers is a licensed Professional Engineer in California, and is a member in the American Society of Civil Engineers, the Earthquake Engineering Research Institute, and the Structural Engineers Association of Northern California.
