Three Women With Ties to U.S. Universities Named Fellows of AMS International

The Aamsmerican Society for Metals was founded in 1913. Now known as ASM International, the society is the world’s largest association of metals-focused materials scientists and engineers with more than 30,000 members worldwide. In 1969, the society began a fellows program that recognizes distinguished contributions to the field.

This year ASM International named 26 new fellows. Four of the new fellows are women, three of whom hold current affiliations with American universities.

juhasMary C. Juhas is associate vice president for gender initiatives in STEMM at Ohio State University in Columbus. She was honored for “significant technical and scientific contributions to the physical metallurgy of the friction-stir welding in joining lightweight alloys, and for groundbreaking and sustained international leadership in promulgating engineering education.” Dr. Juhas earned a bachelor’s degree in chemistry from Seton Hill University in Greensburg, Pennsylvania, a master’s degree in materials science and engineering from Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh, and a Ph.D. in  materials science and engineering from Ohio State University.

RawnClaudia J. Rawn is an associate professor in the department of materials science and engineering at the University of Tennessee in Knoxville. The citation for her induction into the society notes her “significant technical contributions to the study of structure-property relationships of materials for electrochemical energy storage via high temperature x-ray and neutron diffraction.” Dr. Rawn is a graduate of Virginia Tech. She holds a master’s degree in chemistry from George Mason University in Fairfax, Virginia, and a Ph.D. in materials science and engineering from the University of Arizona.

WangHaiyan Wang is an associate professor of electrical and computer engineering at Texas A&M University. Professor Wang was honored for “innovative research at the frontier of nanostructured materials and applications including high temperature superconductors, thin film solid oxide fuel cells, in situ transmission electron microscopy, and multifunctional ceramic composites, and for exceptional potential in inspired education and future leadership.” Dr. Wang is a graduate of Nanchang University in China. She earned a master’s degree at the Institute of Metal Research in Shenyang, China, and a Ph.D. at North Carolina State University in Raleigh.
