Anca-Cristina Ferche will join the Department of Civil, Architectural and Environmental Engineering at The University of Texas at Austin as an assistant professor in our Structural Engineering group in September 2020.

Ferche received her Bachelor’s degree in Civil Engineering from the Technical University of Cluj-Napoca, Cluj-Napoca, Romania in 2012. She is currently working on completing her Ph.D. in Civil and Mineral Engineering at the University of Toronto, Canada where she completed her Master of Applied Science in Structural Engineer in 2015.

Her research interests include analysis and performance assessment of deteriorated concrete infrastructure, nonlinear finite element analysis of reinforced concrete structures, advanced constitutive modeling and alkali-silica reaction effects on the behavior of reinforced concrete structures.

"I am thrilled to join the Department of Civil, Architectural and Environmental Engineering at the University of Texas at Austin. I look forward to contributing to its remarkable innovation-driven culture and to help address some of the complex challenges aging and deteriorating infrastructure pose in Texas and in North America," said Ferche.
