Rigoberto Burgueno

Associate Professor



Primary research interests are related to the development, performance assessment, and implementation of innovative materials to civil infrastructure. In particular, recent research emphasis is on: (i) development of tailored structural materials, components and systems, (ii) solid and structural mechanics for multi-scale applications, (iii) computational design optimization of materials and structures, (iv) large-scale testing, (v) low-cost and innovative manufacturing of tailored materials and structures; (vi) soft-computing methods for structural integrity assessment; (vii) innovative experimental and measurement techniques; (viii) earthquake engineering; and (ix) bridge design.
