ICT congratulates Jeffery Roesler on his recent appointment as the associate head for graduate affairs and director of research in the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.

Roesler will continue to be involved with ICT research. Currently, he serves as the associate director for the Advanced Transportation Research and Engineering Lab (ATREL) and is ICT’s director for outreach and technology transfer. He is an active principal investigator on two ICT/IDOT projects and has completed five other ICT/IDOT projects.

Roesler has been on the faculty in the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign since 2000. In 2011, he was honored with the American Concrete Pavement Association’s Marlin J. Knutson Award for Technical Achievement for his research that has advanced understanding about the use of thin, economical concrete pavement systems. The award also recognized his contributions to an advanced design procedure for thin concrete overlays on asphalt and for groundbreaking work to unlock the science behind the structural benefits of fiber reinforcement for thin concrete slabs.
