I am an industrial ecology researcher with a background in civil engineering and construction management. My research strives to make the current life cycle modeling and technosphere-ecosphere interactions assessment more accurate, and also to make scientific and industrial communities aware of their own actions on the environment. In this regard, I have been focusing on the sustainability of infrastructures, such as pavements and buildings.

I am currently a post-doctoral associate in concrete sustainability hub (CSHub) and Materials Systems Lab (MSL) at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT). I was a postdoctoral scholar at the University of Sherbrooke, Canada. My recent projects mainly focus on the interaction of pavement-building infrastructures in the context of life cycle assessment (LCA). A comprehensive investigation of the pavements across the United States network is a general overview of his contribution to developing breakthroughs that will achieve sustainable infrastructures. I am also working on meta-analysis and harmonization of product category rules (PCRs) and environmental product declarations (EPDs) of construction materials. I received his Ph.D. from the University of Sherbrooke in Canada. My thesis is on the development of dynamic consequential LCA framework for assessing the environmental impacts of pavements.
