Welcome to Our Research Website!

Canada ranks 7th in the world in terms of road length and has more than 1,042,000 kilometers of roads (two-lane equivalent km). These roads play a key role in the safe movement of people and goods, and the economic advancement of the country. Therefore, the country invests billions of dollars every year in construction, rehabilitation, maintenance, and management of these roads.  Over 90% of the roads are paved with an asphalt mixture. Asphalt mixture consisting asphalt cement, mineral aggregates and additives is one of the most complicated materials used in the construction of civil engineering infrastructures.

The overall goal of our research lab is to better understand the characteristics of road materials, to design a durable pavement mixture, and to develop improved pavement design and management systems, while contributing to the body of knowledge in the field and to the generation of highly qualified personnel for the industry and academia. To realize this goal, we take collaborative efforts involving my graduate and co-op students, and colleagues from Memorial and other universities.

Thank you!
