Full Professor at TU Braunschweig in the field of Pavement Engineering
Michael P. Wistuba has a Ph.D. (2002) in Civil Engineering from Vienna University of Technology. From the year 2008, he is head of chair of the Braunschweig Pavement Engineering Centre in the Department of Architecture, Civil Engineering and Environmental Sciences at Technische Universität Braunschweig, Germany. He is author or co-author of 6 Books and Book Chapters, more than 80 research reports, more than 150 articles focusing on asphalt- and binder technology published in conference proceedings and 2 patents. His h-index (Scopus) of 20 captures research output based on the total number of more than 90 peer-reviewed papers in scientific journals. More than a hundred times he was speaker at national and international conferences and meetings. His publications address sustainability of road infrastructures in general – and in detail they cover the fundamental mechanisms that control behavior and durability of asphalt materials and pavement systems, the technical testing to address performance properties, the composition of asphalt mixtures considering various additives and re-using reclaimed asphalt, the design of highway and airport pavements, and the development of road management concepts. He has acted in numerous consulting projects in pavement engineering including federal highways in Germany, Austria, and Switzerland. In 2017, he was awarded the Prize of the Construction Industry Association of Lower-Saxony and Bremen for his significant contributions to technology transfer from science to application in the pavement industry sector. In 2020 and 2021, he was listed among the top 100 most downloaded authors of Nature Scientific Reports. He has been Convenor (2018-2020), and is Expert (2016-2018 and 2020-2025) of RILEM Cluster F on bituminous materials and polymers. He is vice president of the European Asphalt Technology Association (EATA), scientific board member of Deutsches Asphaltinstitut (DAI), member of the German Road and Transportation Research Association (FGSV), and scientific board member of the Swiss Expert Association for Road and Transport Engineering (VSS). From the year 2009, he is Editorial Board Member of the Journal on Road Materials and Pavement Design (RMPD). He has supervised more than 35 PhD theses, and 180 theses of master students.
