Arnesh Das joined the group of Physical Chemistry of Building Materials as a PhD researcher in September 2018. His research is based on the topic of digital fabrication with concrete. He graduated from Delhi Technological University, India with a Bachelors in Civil Engineering in 2016. He completed his Masters in Civil Engineering with a focus on construction materials from University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, USA in 2018. During his Masters, he was in the group of Prof David A. Lange and worked on the air void characterization of foamed cement and air-entrained concrete.
Arnesh is studying the hydration control of binary/ternary cements for layered extrusion. Another part of his work is focused on the frost resistance of 3D printed concrete whereby the goal is to develop a better understanding about the mechanisms of stability and instability of air voids when subjected to different processing conditions.
