Anne Silverman named Fellow of American Society of Mechanical Engineers
Anne Silverman, Rowlinson associate professor of mechanical engineering at Colorado School of Mines, has been named a fellow of the American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME).
ASME fellowship is conferred in recognition of “outstanding engineering achievements” among members with at least 10 years of active practice and membership in ASME.
An expert in musculoskeletal biomechanics, Silverman joined the Mines faculty in 2011. She holds a PhD and M.S. in mechanical engineering, both from The University of Texas at Austin, and a bachelor’s degree in mechanical engineering from Arizona State University.
Silverman’s research focuses on muscular and joint function to improve mobility and reduce injury risk in impaired and at-risk populations. In her work she has identified muscular compensations resulting from the use of prosthetic and assistive devices, characterized balance regulation during dynamic tasks, and performed musculoskeletal modeling analyses to quantify in vivo joint mechanics.
Her research has been funded by the National Institutes of Health and the Department of Defense and has been published in the Journal of Biomechanics, Journal of Biomechanical Engineering and Gait & Posture. She also serves as an Associate Editor for Gait & Posture.
Founded in 1880 by a small group of leading industrialists, ASME is a not-for-profit professional organization that enables collaboration, knowledge sharing and skills development across all engineering disciplines, while promoting the vital role of the engineer in society. Today it counts more than 100,000 members in 140 countries.
