Dr. Maria Juenger

Topic: Fly Ash Alternatives for Texas

Speaker Bio:

Dr. Maria Juenger is a Professor and holder of the Austin Industries Endowed Fellowship in the Department of Civil, Architectural, and Environmental Engineering at the University of Texas at Austin. Dr. Juenger’s teaching and research focus on materials used in civil engineering applications.  She primarily examines chemical issues in cement-based materials, including phase formation in cement clinkering, hydration chemistry of cements and supplementary cementitious materials, and chemical deterioration processes in concrete.  Her current research efforts emphasize the interaction of cement-based materials and the environment.  This work encompasses the development and characterization of cementitious systems with lower carbon dioxide and energy footprints, as well as the capacity of cementitious materials to produce or remove airborne and waterborne pollutants.  Dr. Juenger is a fellow of ACI and the American Ceramic Society (ACerS) and serves on the Board of Directors of ACI. Dr. Juenger received her B.S. degree in Chemistry from Duke University and Ph.D. in Materials Science and Engineering from Northwestern University.   After completing her Ph.D., she was a postdoctoral researcher in Civil Engineering at the University at California, Berkeley before coming to Texas.
