Admir Masic

Associate Professor, Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering, MIT


Admir Masic is an Associate Professor of Civil & Environmental Engineering at MIT. His
lab investigates nano-chemo-mechanical and mineralization processes in a wide range
of anthropogenic and biological materials. With examples spanning from Roman
concretes to modern Portland cement, from nacre to kidney stones, and from ancient
pigments to the Dead Sea scrolls, the ultimate goal of Masic’s lab is to translate the
fundamental knowledge gained from investigating these complex material systems to
solve fundamental engineering challenges related to construction, energy, and the
