Carrie Zegetosky '07: engineering with concrete

ludoxconcrete450021.jpgCaroline Zegetosky graduated from Richmond in spring of 2007, having completed the Engineering dual degree program.  She spent her first three years at UR, then continued as an undergraduate engineering student at the University of Virginia, one of our partner schools, where she is now a graduate student in civil engineering.  Carrie uses the same atomic force microscopy techniques she learned here at UR to study the microstructure of different types of concrete, creating images such as the one to the right.  (Nice pics, Carrie!)

  1. Hi everyone! I just wanted to keep you posted on my current research. I am studying the effects of using nanoparticles in concrete mixes. This image of concrete is 16 microns by 16 microns.
