  • Assistant Professor, Civil And Environmental Engin, University of Utah


Research Summary

My main area of expertise is in incorporating admixtures into concrete and fiber-reinforced concrete pavement design. My research topics include: fiber-reinforced concrete, pavement design, pozzolanic materials, ultra-thin whitetopping (concrete overlay bonded to asphalt), fracture mechanics, and x-ray CT imaging. I have worked on research projects from micro-structural materials characterization to full-scale pavements.
