Associate Professor of Pavement Engineering
Syed Waqar Haider has over 28 years of diverse professional, teaching and research experience in state-of-the-art methods and practical applications for pavements and materials engineering. His experience includes work on mechanistic-empirical pavement analysis and design performance models, performance-related specifications for pavement preservation treatments, pavement and bridge management systems, statistical data analysis for long-term pavement performance, guidelines for pavement recycling, and material characterization including reclaimed asphalt pavement, pavement evaluation and asset management systems.
Haider led several sponsored research studies at the international, national and state levels. The sponsoring agencies include the U.S. Department of Transportation, National Academy of Sciences, National Cooperative Highway Research Program (NCHRP), Federal Highway Administration and Michigan DOT. He has authored and co-authored more than 150 technical publications (42 peer-reviewed journal papers, more than 90 peer-reviewed conference proceedings and presentations and more than 25 reports). Nationally, he is active in the NCHRP, National Science Foundation, Transportation Research Board, American Society of Civil Engineers and International Journal of Pavement Engineering. He is a registered professional engineer in the state of Michigan.
