Dr. Kolawole is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering Department, New Jersey Institute of Technology (NJIT). His unique interdisciplinary research integrates rock mechanics and geo-engineering, and sometimes with biotechnology, to investigate the deformation and failure of geomaterials (rock and soil) in response to changes in stress, pressure, and temperature, including its applications to geo-systems, sustainability, energy, and the environment. He previously took part in the highly rated “Research Experience in Carbon Sequestration” (RECS) program of U.S. Department of Energy (DOE).
