I have a keen interest in research activities and innovation works. It is easy for me to start any difficult task. I can make big decisions occasionally.
Cements, Concretes, and new technologies are areas of high interest to me. I was working on 4 projects and have completed 2 of them.
I have supervised research studies on Waste materials incorporated concretes e.g. quarry dust, marble powder, rice husk ash, titanium carbide, silicon carbide, metakaolin, etc. Glow in dark plasters, Glow in dark aggregates, high alumina mortars with SCMs and polymers, Concretes with polymers e.g. SBR latex and powder, PVAc, EVAc, PVAol, EVAol, etc, Specific performance concrete blocks, Acid stained concretes. I have worked with rheometers and colorimeters during my own research projects. I have reviewed 10 papers (mostly ACI structural, ACI material journals and Advances in Cement Research ,2018-to date).

My Moto is: Think Big and do not Compare yourself with others.
