May Technical Webinar: Pervious Concrete Research in Texas
May 14 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm CDT
The presentation focuses on pervious concrete, a pavement option that decreases flooding and other stormwater impacts. Dr. Haselbach’s research covers many aspects of pervious concrete including heat island mitigation, metals removal, and cold climate issues. This presentation will cover general aspects of pervious concrete systems and research findings most applicable to their acceptance in Texas.
This webinar will be presented by Dr. Liv Haselbach P.E. from Lamar University in Beaumont, Texas.
Dr. Liv Haselbach P.E. is a Professor and Chair of Civil and Environmental Engineering at Lamar University in Texas. She authored the McGraw-Hill book, The Engineering Guide to LEED- New Construction, Sustainable Construction for Engineers, served as an Associate Director of the USDOT University Transportation Center for Environmentally Sustainable Transportation in Cold Climates (CESTiCC), and was the 2015 Fulbright/Alcoa Distinguished Chair in the Environmental Sciences and Engineering in Brazil. She previously was an Associate/Full Professor of Civil and Environmental Engineering at Washington State University, an Assistant Professor at the University of South Carolina, and a Lecturer at Yale University.
She has authored numerous papers on sustainability related to site issues, concrete carbon sequestration, metal mitigation technologies, life cycle assessment and low impact development. Her degrees include a BS with Distinction in Civil and Environmental Engineering from Cornell, an MS in Chemical Engineering from UC Berkeley, and a PhD in Environmental Engineering from the University of Connecticut. Dr. Haselbach is a licensed professional engineer and a LEED AP (BD+C). Prior to her academic career she founded an engineering consulting company in the New York – Connecticut area, which specialized in permitting and site development for major US companies.
