Edwina Saroufim completed a joint PhD

Edwina Saroufim completed a joint Ph.D in Civil, Environmental, and Material Engineering from the University of Balamand, Lebanon and the University of Palermo, Italy on May 21, 2018.

The prestigious HERMES Scholarship gave her the invaluable opportunity of traveling abroad and strengthening her dissertation research which aimed at finding a polymer-bitumen blend to achieve superior performance, dynamic mechanical analysis and stability. The dissertation was supervised by Prof. Nariman Khalil from UOB and Prof. Clara Celauro from UNIPA. The focal point of research was successfully addressed via concerns pertaining to sustainable impact.

Dr. Saroufim conducted field research throughout her course of study at the University of Wisconsin in 2015 where she followed track of pavement and roadway material. Several of her findings were eventually published in peer reviewed scientific journals and in international scientific conferences. ​​
