Anne S. Kiremidjian is a Professor in the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering at Stanford University. From 1987 to 2002 she served as the Co-Director and Director of the John A. Blume Earthquake Engineering Center at Stanford University. Dr Kiremidjian received her B.S. degree from Columbia University in Civil Engineering and her M.S. and Ph. D. degrees from Stanford University in Structural Engineering. As faculty at Stanford she teaches courses in structural analysis, earthquake hazard and risk analysis, structural reliability and decision theory. Her research over the years has focused on all aspects of earthquake hazard and loss estimation, regional risk assessment, risk analysis of transportation systems, wireless sensor and sensing system development for structural performance evaluation, and the development of damage detection algorithms using sensor measurements.
Professor Kiremidjian is the recipient of several awards and honors. Most notable are the Stanford University School of Engineering Distinguished Advisor Award, National Science Foundation Faculty Award for Women, Society of Women Engineers Distinguished Educator Award, Extraordinary Achievement Award in Loss Estimation from Applied Technology Council, and the C. Martin Duke Award for Excellence in Lifeline Earthquake Engineering Research by the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE). In 2014 she was elected Distinguished Member of the American Socitye of Civil Engineers, the highest honor given by the society, she received the Lifetime Achievement Award at the International Workshop on Structural Health Monitoring in September of 2017, and in April of 2018 she was awarded the John Fritz Medal from the American Association of Engineering Societies, one of the highest awards given to an engineer in the United States.
Dr. Kiremidjian has more than 350 publications that include journals papers, book chapters, technical reports, and refereed conference proceeding papers. She has been an invited, keynote and distinguished lecturer at major national and international meetings and makes frequent presentations at seminars and other professional gatherings. She holds patents related wireless structural monitoring and advanced damage detection algorithms.
