Mehran Mazari received his PhD degree with the focus on transportation infrastructure materials from the University of Texas at El Paso (UTEP) in 2014. Before joining the academia, Mehran was a post-doctoral research associate at the Center for Transportation Infrastructure Systems, a member of national and regional University Transportation Center consortia, at UTEP. He has been actively involved in a number of research projects focusing on transportation geotechnics and transportation infrastructure materials. He is the member of three technical committees at Transportation Research Board and the young member of Highway Pavement Committee of American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE).

Mehran is the founding director of Sustainable and Intelligent Transportation Infrastrcuture (SITI) research group at California State University Los Angeles. For more information please visit:
