Associate Professor, Mechanical Engineering
Junlan Wang joined the University of Washington’s Mechanical Engineering department from the University of California, Riverside. Previously, she spent one year at Brown University as a Postdoctoral Research Associate. She received her Ph.D. in Theoretical and Applied Mechanics from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.
Wang's research is in the area of mechanics of complex material systems. She is interested in developing novel experimental techniques complemented by numerical and analytical approaches to study the mechanics and physics of materials and structures at small spatial and temporal scales. Her honors and awards include an NSF CAREER Award, an ASEE Beer and Johnston Outstanding New Mechanics Educator Award, an SEM Hetenyi Award and an ASME Materials Division Certification of Recognition.
