José E. Andrade
George W. Housner Professor of Civil and Mechanical Engineering
Research interests: granular materials, geomechanics, carbon sequestration, multiscale modeling
Professor Andrade's research focuses on developing a fundamental understanding of the multiscale and multiphysical behaviors of porous materials—everything from soils, rocks, and concrete to bone. He also studies the behavior of granular materials like sand, snow, and even grain stored in silos. His research has particular applications to geologic and engineering infrastructure materials, as well as to the petroleum industry.
