Jacek Katzer

D.Sc. Ph.D. M.Sc. B.Sc. P.E. qualified, highly experienced technologist of concrete. He has wide expertise as a concrete researcher, mix designer, quality controller of concrete production (both ready-mix and precast elements) and concrete technology lecturer. Since 1994 (finishing M.Sc. studies) he has been continuously involved in technology of concrete as: professional engineer, researcher, quality controller, lecturer, KTP associate at The University of Sheffield (UK), director of Laboratory of Building Engineering (Koszalin University of Technology) and European Commission expert. He is an alumnus of “TOP 500 Innovators – science, management, commercialization” programme (Haas School of Business, University of California Berkeley, USA). Since 2011 he is a member of editorial board of “OVIDIUS University Annals – Constantza”, Series: Civil Engineering. His current research and technical interests cover: green concrete, waste and recycled aggregate, static and dynamic properties of concrete, SFRC and SIFCON, durability and serviceability of concrete and fibre reinforced concrete, non-destructive testing (NDT) of concrete, fibre reinforced concrete and other cement based composites, modern and traditional brickwork, modern and traditional mortars, non-steel reinforcement for concrete elements and structures. His teaching interests are focused on technology of concrete, technology and application of building materials. Since 2006 he is a member of International Society for Concrete Pavements (USA). Apart from research and testing activities he has promoted dozens of M.Sc. and Eng. theses, most of which were purely research and innovative. Author of over 150 scientific papers in various fields of concrete technology published in proceedings and journals (in English, in German, and in Polish – see a list of chosen publications below).
