Nanotech Middle East 2017 Conference and Exhibition

Speaker's Details

Prof. Shiho Kawashima

Columbia University - USA

Prof Shiho Kawashima’s work is in experimental cement and concrete research, which aims to tie nano-/microstructural behavior to macroscale structural response. She specializes in cement rheology, particularly in the development of innovative measurement techniques to further the understanding of the structural and temporal evolution of the fresh-state microstructure of cementitious systems. She is also interested in nanocomposites, including the integration of nanomodification with the use of supplementary cementitious materials to aid in the design of sustainable infrastructural materials.
