Research Interests

  • Reducing the environmental impact of cementitious binders while also finding solutions to the many durability issues plaguing reinforced concrete structures

More specifically:

  • Development and optimization of new cement formulations with smaller CO2 production footprints
  • Understanding the physical and chemical processes involved in durability issues such as sulfate attack, alkali silica reaction, and damage resulting from freezing and thawing
  • Investigating methods for prevention of distress, and when it occurs, repairing and rehabilitating structures affected by durability issues
  • Increasing utilization of cement fillers (such as fly ash and natural pozzolans) in concrete mixtures to offset landfilling while lowering construction costs
  • Determining the feasibility of upscaling new systems for use in large scale structures (moving discoveries from the lab into real world usage)
  • Understanding use of rapid repair materials in construction to decrease construction time and costs
