Structural analysis and design using steel, concrete, and timber
Dr. Cardelino’s current research interests include producing sustainable concrete mixes by replacing a portion of energy-intensive portland cement with limestone powder and metakaolin. She is also interested in the potential of using mine tailing debris as construction material in developing countries. She has gained teaching experience through both instructional training and lecturing, and uses her past work experiences to bridge the gap between theory and practice.
