ASTM International Awards Deborah Glosser with Katharine and Bryant Mather Scholarship

ASTM International presented Deborah Glosser with its annual Katharine and Bryant Mather Scholarship Award, administered by its committee on concrete and concrete aggregates (C09).

This award is presented annually to full time undergraduate students completing their second/sophomore year of college, or to graduate students who are pursuing degrees specializing in cement or concrete materials technology, or concrete construction. Each recipient of the scholarship is awarded up to $7,500 to be used for their educational expenses and up to $1,500 to cover expenses to attend a Committee C09 meeting as part of their professional development.

Glosser’s specialization is computational materials science. Her primary work is on thermodynamic and multiphysics models to help inform the development of durable and sustainable materials used in civil engineering. Glosser received her master of science in geophysics from University of Pittsburgh in 2013 and her Ph.D. in civil engineering from Oregon State University in 2020. That same year, she became a professor of engineering and materials science at Western Washington University. She’s also a member of the American Concrete Institute and the American Geophysical Union.
