Dr. Masadís research focuses on constitutive modeling of asphalt mixtures, asphalt pavements performance, transport in porous media, granular mechanics, microstructure characterization of materials, and image analysis techniques. In the past ten years, Dr. Masad has been the PI and Co-PI on projects with total funds that amount to approximately $10,000,000. Sponsors of his research include the National Science Foundation, National Cooperative Highway Research Program, Federal Highway Administration, Texas Department of Transportation, International Center for Aggregate Research, Qatar National Research Fund, Qatar Science and Technology Park, the Asphalt Institute, Washington State Department of Transportation, Idaho Transportation Department, as well as private industrial firms. He has active research programs in the United States and in the State of Qatar. He has published more than 300 technical papers and reports on performance testing of asphalt mixes, modeling, and equipment development. He has recently co-authored a book on Pavement Design and Materials which has been adopted for teaching pavement courses in many universities around the world.
