Research Summary

My collaborative investigations in pyroclastic volcanism, mineralogy, materials and archaeological science are breaking new ground in understanding how reactive glass produces specialty properties in Roman concretes. We are now applying Roman methods and materials – and information contained in drill cores from a geologic analog at Surtsey volcano in Iceland - to the production of innovative, environmentally-sustainable, glass-based concretes.
