Judy Schneider is a professor in the Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering at the University of Alabama in Huntsville. She received her B.S. in mechanical engineering from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln and her M.S. and Ph.D. in materials engineering from the University of California, Davis. Her research focuses on the behavior of structural materials under extreme environments imposed by either the processing conditions or subsequent operation.
As an active member of TMS since 2003, she has served on a number of technical and functional committees for the Society, most notably as the current vice chair of the Content Development & Dissemination Committee. In addition to her active research program, funded by NASA, the U.S. National Science Foundation, the U.S. Air Force Office of Scientific Research, and various industries, she was recognized with TMS's Structural Materials Division (SMD) Distinguished Service Award in 2015, was elected to the Acta Materialia Board of Governors as the TMS representative, and is a Fellow of ASM International.
Schneider has served on the TMS Program Committee (2012 to 2014) and represented TMS to the Materials Science & Technology 2013 (MS&T13) and MS&T14 Conference Program Coordinating Committee, serving as chair for MS&T14. In addition to her leadership roles for TMS committees, including technical committees in the SMD and Materials Processing & Manufacturing Division, she has also been JOM advisor for several committees, including her recent role with the Additive Manufacturing Committee.
