John J. Valenza II

Research Interests

    I first came to Princeton in 1998 as a summer student in the REU program, and got hooked on research on frost damage in concrete. When I entered Princeton as a graduate student in 2000, the plan was to continue work in that area, but I got involved in a wide range of projects. Along the way, I studied permeability of cement paste, thermal expansion of water in nanopores, nucleation of ice in concrete, and salt scaling. The latter subject became the subject of my thesis. You can learn about the results by following the “Thesis” link, below.
