CURRENT RESEARCH FOCUS:
Smart materials and structures and emerging construction technologies to enable resilient and sustainable infrastructure. My research focus is on experimental investigations of materials at the different length scales for developing next generation cementitious and polymer composites that enable adaptive, multi-functional, self-healing and self-sensing capabilities. Active research includes
- Seismic retrofit of bridges using 3D printed nano-modified concrete with superior ductility.
- Smart polymer nanocomposites for monitoring integrity of strategic petroleum reserves.
- Deployable aerospace antenna using topologically optimized 3D printed carbon fibers.
