Matthew Bandelt completed his Ph.D. in Civil and Environmental Engineering at Stanford University in 2015 where he specialized in the use of innovative construction materials to improve the performance of structural systems. Recent research has focused on cement-based composites which incorporate small polymeric and steel fibers to improve the structural behavior and durability of reinforced concrete structures. He has developed specifications to aid in design of structures using these composites, as well as computational modeling tools to predict their behavior under earthquake loading. He is currently exploring the use of these composites, and other novel construction materials, to improve infrastructure durability against harsh environmental conditions, and to decrease construction times and project delays. Dr. Bandelt is a recipient of the prestigious National Science Foundation Graduation Research Fellowship (NSF-GRF), and has also received awards from the American Institute of Steel Construction (AISC) and the American Society of Civil Engineers Structural Engineering Institute (ASCE-SEI).
