Mw. Greet Leegwater


I have obtained my Master degree in 2006 at the TU Delft and am now a part-time PhD candidate at the pavement engineering group since 2013. I also work at TNO. Most of the work at TNO is focuses on prolonging the service life while reducing the environmental impact of roads.


In my PhD project I aim to increase the understanding of the process of healing of asphalt with the ultimate goal of formulating a predictive material model for the healing potential of asphaltic material, based on parameters determined in the lab. In my work I have designed a new test set-up that is allows to study different aspects of healing.
