Sustainability at the core of road construction! This is my motto and I strive to this goal through researching asphalt recycling, the use of waste materials and warm mix asphalt. I have authored many scientific publications where, through exploring the fundamental material-related aspects, I present practice-oriented solutions to bring sustainability to practitioners. To increase adaption of these technologies I have worked closely with multiple road administrations to improve road specifications, particularly towards introducing performance-based approach in mixture design and quality control. Implementation of new technologies also depends on their acceptance in society and among practitioners, therefore I communicate my findings actively through videos and I have presented in TED conference. In 2016 I received the International Road Federation award for best research for the work on 100% asphalt recycling. I received PhD as a Fulbright scholar at WPI, Massachusetts. Before that I pursued Master’s thesis at TU Denmark and received BSc degree at TU Riga.
