Dr. Eyad Masad will be inducted this spring as a fellow of The American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) for his contributions to the field of infrastructure materials and systems.

He’s being recognized for his work on the development of innovative methods for characterization of material microstructure and computational modeling of road performance. This work has improved the design of long-lasting and sustainable road infrastructure.

Masad is the Zachry Professor in Design and Construction Integration II in the Zachry Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering at Texas A&M University, and professor of mechanical engineering at Texas A&M at Qatar. He also is the executive director of Global Partnerships in the Texas A&M Engineering Experiment Station.

“I am quite pleased to be selected as a fellow of this prestigious organization,” Masad said. “It is a privilege to be recognized for making scientific contributions that advance science and its applications."

He has active research groups and programs in the United States and in Qatar, and has published more than 350 technical papers and reports. He is a fellow of the American Society of Civil Engineers and has served as associate editor of two major engineering journals. Through the years, he has received several prestigious academic and professional awards in recognition of his professional, academic, research and administrative contributions.

He is the co-author of a book “Pavement Design and Materials,” which is adopted for teaching pavement courses in many universities around the world. Based on Google Scholar, he has an H-Index of 61 and total citations of 12,337 citations as of Dec 12, 2019. Masad has established several research laboratories and chaired/co-chaired many conferences, symposia and workshops sponsored by professional organizations all over the world. 

He received his bachelor’s degree from the University of Jordan in 1993, and his master’s (1995) and doctoral (1998) degrees from Washington State University, all in civil engineering.

Masad will be recognized during the association’s annual meeting in Seattle, Washington, in February. Formed in 1848, AAAS is the world’s largest multidisciplinary scientific society, with members in more than 91 nations.
