My principal research interest is the rapid curing technique of geopolymer potentially suitable for 3D printing. Geopolymer is strong and eco-friendly sustainable cementitious construction material. My other research involves the development of energy-efficient material using halloysite nanotubes. Another research interest includes the rehabilitation of buried pipes and hidden HVAC lines.
