Dr. Hubler joined the Civil, Environmental and Architectural Engineering Department at the University of Colorado Boulder as an Assistant Professor in the Structural Engineering and Structural Mechanics Group in January 2015. She received her MS from Cornell University in 2009 and Ph.D. in Structural Engineering from Northwestern University in 2013. Prior to that, she received her BS in Civil Engineering from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign in 2006.

Dr. Hubler’s research addresses structural evaluation and redesign. Her focus is on construction materials testing, developments in the design code, and infrastructure and construction material aging. She is the Co-Director of the Center of Infrastructure, Energy, and Space Testing (CIEST).
