Research Interests

Engineering Sustainable Infrastructure Materials

  • experimental characterization of material behavior
  • examination of biorenewable construction materials
  • assessment of alternative cementitious materials
  • mechanics-based modeling of time-dependent material properties

Assessment of Life Cycle Environmental Impacts

  • quantification of environmental impacts associated with:
    • production of infrastructure materials
    • use of infrastructure materials
    • disposal, recovery, and degradation of materials
  • assessment of regional and global environmental impacts associated with infrastructure material production

Developing Methods for Improved Sustainability of Structural Systems

  • Use of structural system requirements to develop metrics for comparison of material alternatives and composite constituent selection
