Dr. Stephanie TerMaath earned her degrees in Civil Engineering with a concentration in structural mechanics from Penn State (B.S.), Purdue University (M.S.) and Cornell University (Ph.D.). Dr. TerMaath managed the Physics Based Computing Group at Applied Research Associates prior to her current appointment at UT. Her research interests focus on applying structural mechanics to human head modeling and simulation. She develops high fidelity models and coupled fluid structure methodology to support realistic simulation of the human head under blast and impact loading. She also investigates the behavior and effects of arachnoid cysts.
