New employees at the Institut for Construction and Building Materials

We are pleased to welcome our three latest team members!


We are happy to welcome three new staff members at the WiB. We hope for an exciting and successfull future with Dr.-Ing. Mohammadreza Izadifar, M.Sc. Luciano Sambataro and M.Sc. Chem. Eng. Agustin Laveglia.

Dr. -Ing. Mohammadreza Izadifar

Dr. -Ing. Mohammadreza Izadifar is working on computational modelling of hydrated cementitious materials from characterization, chemical engineering, producing cementitious composite materials, and mechanical properties from atomic scale. He is currently working on the computational modelling of initial phases of cementitious materials such as Alite and Belite.

M.Sc. Luciano Sambataro

M.Sc. Luciano Sambataro obtained a Marie Curie fellowship in the frame of an ITN (International Training Network), under the project SUBLime (Sustainable Building Lime Applications via Circular Economy and Biomimetic Approaches) and is currently developing as a PhD Student at the Institute of Construction and Building Materials at the Technical University of Darmstadt.

MSc. Chem. Eng. Agustin Laveglia

MSc. Chem. Eng. Agustin Laveglia joined the WiB Institute as Marie Skłodowska-Curie Research Fellow within the framework of the SUBLime project, a MSCA European Training network – Innovative Training Network (ETN ITN). His task is to integrate and quantify improvements of a generation of innovative lime-based mortars and plasters provided by the network. He applies advanced LCA methodology, focusing on detailed description of the cradle-to-gate processes and extended novel approaches to predict service life and CO2 capture.
