Civil & Construction Engineering
Professor
John and Jean Loosley Faculty Fellow
 
Education:
Ph.D., Civil Engineering, Carleton University, 2001
M.S., Civil Engineering, Carleton University, 1997
B.S., Civil Engineering, Bogazici University, 1995
 
Interests and Research:
Dr. Isgor’s research interests include materials science of cement and concrete, corrosion, electrochemistry, surface science, computational materials science, and non-destructive model-assisted testing of materials and structures. The ultimate goal of his research is to develop integrated numerical and sensory tools for infrastructure owners and operators so that they can better evaluate the state of their assets and make informed decisions on their future. These tools help engineers manage infrastructure by allowing them to schedule maintenance, rehabilitation and replacement operations more efficiently and accurately so that their assets will be resilient against extreme conditions imposed by multiple sources of hazard.
 
A Professional Engineer in the Province of Ontario, Dr. Isgor served as the Vice President of the Canadian Society for Civil Engineering (CSCE) between 2009 and 2011 and was in charge of the technical divisions of the Society. He is currently active in a number of professional societies including American Concrete Institute (ACI), National Association of Corrosion Engineers (NACE) and Electrochemical Society (ECS).
 
Teaching:
Dr. Isgor’s teaching interests include mechanics and materials science of cement and concrete, durability of concrete, corrosion, electrochemistry and finite element method.
