My interest in concrete research began in 2011, when I was an undergraduate student. I began honors thesis research that involved testing the bonding capabilities of prestressing strand using something called the “Standard Test for Strand Bond.” Since then I have become interested in all sorts of concrete research, which you can learn more about at the links on the left side of the page.
I completed my B.S. and M.S. at the University of Arkansas in 2012 and 2014, respectively. I then completed a Ph.D. at the University of Oklahoma in summer 2017 and returned to Arkansas as an Assistant Professor in August 2017.
I am a member of the ACI committees on Prestressed Concrete, Bridge Evaluation, and Alternative Cements (on which I am a voting member).
My research is funded by state DOTs, concrete industry groups, private industry, and federal sources. I am currently working on research related to concrete pavements, cross-laminated timber, new concrete materials, and concrete admixtures.
If you are interested in my work and the work of my research group, you can Contact Me and I would be happy to discuss more. I am always interested in qualified students to work on my projects.
