Prof. Shah has been actively involved in concrete technology research for several decades. Prof. Shah’s research addresses a variety of topics in concrete materials science and engineering, including high-strength concrete, shrinkage measurement, nondestructive test methods to monitor properties ranging from setting time to the modulus of elasticity, and rheology of fresh concrete, self-consolidating concrete, and nanotechnology applications. He has made pioneering and groundbreaking contributions to the understanding of fiber-reinforced concrete, damage, and fracture, as well as developing innovative experimental techniques. He served as a Professor of Civil Engineering, at Northwestern University and founded NSF-funded Center for Advanced Cement Based Materials (ACBM) including the academic partners universities of Illinois, Michigan, Purdue, and NIST. This center has encouraged multidisciplinary research and established a new paradigm in materials science research for cement and concrete. In addition to teaching at Northwestern, he has taught at the University of Illinois at Chicago and served as a visiting professor at Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), University of Sidney, Denmark Technical University, Delft University of Technology, National University of Singapore, Darmstadt Technical University and LCPC Paris. He has been an honorary professor at the Hong Kong Polytechnic University and L’Aquilla University in Italy, a guest professor at Southeast University, and the distinguished professor at the Indian Institute of Technology, Madras, and Jinan University China. He is an honorary academician at Dalian Maritime University and. Tongji University. He is a member of the Institute of Advanced Studies at the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology.
