During my studies in structural engineering, I focused my interests on durability of construction materials and especially on corrosion initiation and propagation of reinforced concrete structures.
Currently I am working on improving the self-healing capacity of cementitious materials by the addition of waste-derived healing agents. Main point of my research is to evaluate if, and how, self-healing mechanisms improve the durability of concrete, especially with regard to its corrosion propagation resistance.
