Born: 1942

Interests: mathematics, continuum mechanics, nonlinear mechanics, intelligent materials, nanomechanics

Veturia Chiroiu (born in 1942) received the PhD degree in Mathematics from University of Bucharest in 1981. Since 1966 she is a senior scientific researcher at the Institute of Solid Mechanics of the Romanian Academy, head of Department of Continuum Mechanics. She received a Fulbright Fellowship to work at the Princeton University, Dept. of Aerospace and Mechanical Science (1972-1973), and has led various research projects. She has approximately 100 publications and holds one patent. She is the winner of the prize Aurel Vlaicu of the Romanian Academy in 1997. Since 2000 she is a PhD advisor in the field of mechanical engineering at the Romanian Academy. Since 2004 she is an Honorific Member of the Technical Sciences Academy of Romania (ASTR)
