We are pleased to announce the addition of concrete materials research engineer Jussara Tanesi, Ph.D., FACI, to the AET team.
Dr. Tanesi, a well-known concrete expert and author of over 50 technical publications, is highly respected, both nationally and internationally, for her expertise in concrete materials research, concrete specifications, materials characterization, evaluation of new materials and testing, standardization, and concrete durability and sustainability.
Before joining AET, Jussara served for almost 18 years as a lead contract researcher and laboratory manager at the Federal Highway Administration's Turner-Fairbank Highway Research Center Turner-Fairbank Highway Research Center (TFHRC), a U.S. Department of Transportation facility located in McLean, Virginia. There she conducted research related to concrete materials and concrete pavements and evaluated new and established tests for quality assurance, mixture qualifications and durability requirements.
The AET St. Paul office includes one of the largest construction materials testing laboratories in the US, conducting construction materials performance and evaluations from engineering projects across the nation and around the world. As a new member of the AET Concrete Materials Laboratory Department, Dr. Tanesi’s expertise will be instrumental on projects requiring analysis of the performance and durability of concrete and other related construction materials.
