Jay Sanjayan



Professor Jay Sanjayan is the Director of Swinburne’s Centre for Sustainable Infrastructure and Professor of Concrete Structures.

His current projects include 3D printing of concrete, low carbon concretes, geopolymer concretes, use of phase change materials in construction and monitoring the performance of geopolymer concrete in the field. He has published extensively in these topics (with an H-index of 34 in Google Scholar) and is also involved in a number of consulting projects related to concrete materials technology and structural design.

In 2015, RILEM (International Union of Laboratories and Experts in Construction Materials, Systems and Structures) appointed Professor Sanjayan Honorary President and he also served as Chairman of the Concrete 2015 conference held in Melbourne. He has also chaired the editorial board of Concrete in Australia, and was a member of the editorial board of Construction Materials Journal and Materials and Structures. Prior to joining Swinburne in 2010, Professor Sanjayan worked at Monash University for 21 years.
