Dr. Arghavan Louhghalam joined the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering as an assistant professor. Prior to joining the University of Massachusetts Dartmouth, she was a postdoctoral research associate at Massachusetts Institute of Technology's Concrete Sustainability Hub (CSHub@MIT). She holds a Ph.D. and a M.S. in Engineering Mechanics from the Johns Hopkins University, a M.S. in Earthquake Engineering from University of Tehran, and a B.S. in Civil and Environmental Engineering from Iran University of Science and Technology, Iran.
Dr. Louhghalam's research interests are mainly focused on interconnected areas of solid mechanics, material modeling and applied statistics with applications to the development of sustainable and resilient civil infrastructure. Her research on quantitative engineering sustainability aims at development of mechanics-based predictive tools to quantify the environmental impact of civil infrastructures and identify the key contributing factors to this footprint.
