Sustainable Infrastructure with Dr. Robert Thomas
The United Nations (UN) Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) are blueprints for achieving a better and more sustainable future by addressing the myriad challenges we face as a global society such as failing infrastructure, changing climates, and the dwindling supply of natural resources. Dr. Robert Thomas studies concrete solutions to these problems—literally. His research promotes sustainable and resilient infrastructure through advancements in concrete materials. Join us through Zoom for this talk where he will discuss how the UN SDGs intersect with sustainable infrastructure and materials, identify major challenges faced by the next generation, and show how advances in concrete materials technology can help overcome those challenges.
Dr. Thomas studied Civil Engineering at Clarkson University, attaining his B.S. in 2011, an M.S. in 2013, and his Ph.D. in 2016. His experiences and passions have drawn him to focus his research on infrastructure materials. Dr. Thomas rarely misses an opportunity to express his love for concrete, and we are excited to share that passion with him through this week’s Ignite Speaker Series.
