Association - Interview with Dr. Claire White, Gustavo Colonnetti Medalist 2019
27th March 2019

 

RIM DC: What is your relationship with RILEM, when did you become a member for the first time, has RILEM helped you in your career?

I think I became a RILEM member once I started at Princeton University. I joined once it became apparent that I was really in the area of research in construction materials and I knew the importance of being involved with the organization and helping move our findings from research into industry and implementation.

I had known about RILEM before (joining Princeton) because my supervisors were active in the TCs but during my postdoc (Los Alamos national lab)...

RIM DC: If you had to explain your work to your grandmother, what would you say?

Dr Ghiassi: I check if the structures are well enough and I find remedies if they are not well.

RIM DC: What is your relationship with RILEM, when did you become a member for the first time, has RILEM helped you in your career?

Dr Ghiassi: I became a member of RILEM in 2012 when I was in the second year of my PhD studies. I joined because my research group [at the University of Minho] was a RILEM member and my PhD topic was related to the topic of one of RILEM TCs so that gave me the opportunity to attend...
