Hannele Zubeck, Ph.D., P.E., M.ASCE, is the recipient of the CAN-AM Civil Engineering Amity Award for her exemplary work with Canadian engineers in cowriting a book on Cold Regions Pavement Engineering, for serving on Canadian and international conference organizing committees, and for promoting Canadian attendance at U.S. conferences and teaching arctic engineering to Canadians via the Internet.  Professor and chair of the Arctic Engineering Program at the University of Alaska, Anchorage, Zubeck, as a civil engineer and professor of civil and arctic engineering, has worked almost entirely on cold regions problems involving pavement structures, foundations, and structural materials. During her 25-year career Zubeck has been exemplary in the presentation and publication of the results of her research work. Through her teaching and research studies on cold regions engineering problems she frequently cooperates with Canadian engineers and scientists. Her work as co-author of a major book with a noted Canadian engineer, Guy Doré, Ph.D., P.E., M.ASCE, titled Cold Regions Pavement Engineering (2008), demonstrates her desire to educate other professionals in some of the state-of-the-art considerations and solutions to the problems of building in colder climates. Vice-president of the International Association of Cold Region Development Studies (IACORDS), and a member of the International Society on Soil Mechanics, Zubeck has become a worldwide authority on cold regions design and construction. She has written or co-written more than 50 engineering publications, including 30 as primary author. In 1998 she received the Society of Women Engineers’ Engineer of the Year Award and was a nominee for Alaska’s Engineer of the Year award.
