Dr. Maryam Hojati is an assistant professor in Civil, Construction, and Environmental Engineering at the University of New Mexico (UNM). She received her Ph.D. in 2017 from the Pennsylvania State University. During her academic experience, she worked on a variety of research studies that equipped her with the skills to conduct diverse research in material, structure, and application of additive manufacturing in construction. She was involved in multiple phases of the NASA Centennial Challenge from 2016 to 2019 NASA to build a 3D-printed habitat for deep space exploration. She joined the CCEE department at UNM in Aug. 2019 and established the Advanced Sustainable Construction (ASC) Lab, leveraging her prior experience setting up a 3D-printing lab. Working alongside her team, she focused on designing and developing innovative sustainable materials, adapting them for additive manufacturing (AM) technology. Her research addresses three critical areas in the construction industry, including (1) designing and constructing resilient infrastructures (2) building affordable houses, and (3) designing sustainable construction materials and practices on the earth and beyond.
