As a partner university, the University of Washington will involve both undergraduate and graduate students in research activities. UW students involved in ABC-UTC research projects or supported by the ABC-UTC will be listed on this page.
Michelle Chang (MS, Student): Michelle is an MS student studying structural engineering at the University of Washington. She received her B.S. in Civil Engineering from Princeton University (2016) with a joint focus on structures and architecture. From 2016 to 2018, Michelle worked as a project engineer for Kiewit at the Los Angeles Rams/Chargers Stadium, where she ran on-site precast concrete operations. She is currently working with Professors John Stanton and Marc Eberhard on the High Speed Rail project.
Taneum Luciani (BS, Student): Taneum is a senior and an undergraduate researcher at the University of Washington with a concentration in structural engineering.He is focusing on instrumentation of the test specimens and has an individual research project investigating the fracture energy of concrete, which is a critical modeling parameter for systems relying on bond and anchorage for force transfer. This work is primarily experimental, joint with the National Science Foundation and conducted under the supervision of Professor Lehman. He is expected to receive his BSCE in 2019.
Alec Yuetter (MS, Student): Alec is a graduate research assistant at University of Washington, Seattle. He received his BS in Civil Engineering from the University of Washington in 2017 and is currently pursuing his masters. His MS thesis is investigating new connections for CFST components using anchorage and bond. This work is primarily experimental, joint with the National Science Foundation and conducted under the supervision of Professor Lehman.
