Dr. Lo Presti expertise is Sustainable Transport Infrastructures Engineering, with a focus on infrastructure's technology development and sustainable asset management. His research is both applied and fundamental and involves investigation of effective techniques for recycling waste/secondary materials (i.e. tyre rubber, reclaimed asphalt, etc..), into civil engineering applications such as roads, railways, roofing membranes. Dr. Lo Presti is also directly involved on conceiving and developing tools, methodologies and concepts for a more sustainable management of transport infrastructures and related technologies. Dr. Lo Presti has extensive experience in international and multi-disciplinary projects. On this regards, He has ensured funding for major projects with consortiums of 30 partners the will allow carrying out cutting-edge fundamental and practical research based on his vision of Sustainable Multi-Functional Automated Resilient Transport Infrastructures.
