Stalin Armijos, Ph.D.
Stalin believes the beauty of engineering resides in understanding fundamental concepts and skilled implementation. His passion for structural engineering has presented challenges ranging from designing oil and gas facilities to investigating performance of steel bridges. His background includes analysis and design of steel and concrete structures subjected to dynamic loading. His graduate research included analysis of steel structures under seismic loading and optimization of horizontally curved steel tub girders through experimental and numerical studies. He is a member of the American Institute of Steel Construction (AISC) and has presented his work in national and international events.
Stalin received his B.S. in Civil Engineering from The Army Polytechnic School in Ecuador, and both his M.S. and Ph.D. in Civil Engineering from The University of Texas at Austin.
Outside the professional environment, Stalin enjoys spending time with his girlfriend, practicing soccer, playing some music on his guitar, and riding his bike.
