Biography

Dr. Zhanping You has over 15 years of full time teaching and research experience in research institution and academia. He joined the faculty at Texas A&M University – Kingsville in January 2004 as a tenure track Assistant Professor. He accepted a position at the rank of Assistant Professor in December 2005 in the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering at Michigan Technological University. He earned his Ph.D. in Civil Engineering from the University of Illinois at Urbana - Champaign in 2003. Dr. You served as Director of the Center of Excellence for Transportation Materials for a few years, which is in partnership between Michigan Department of Transportation and Michigan Technological University for a few years. He was entitled Donald and Rose Ann Tomasini Assistant Professor of Transportation Engineering. He was promoted to Associate Professor in 2009 and Professor in 2014.

In his capacity as a Professor, he has completed research projects on a wide range of subjects including pavement mechanistic design, warm mix asphalt, rubber asphalt, nano modified asphalt materials, micromechanics based models for pavement materials, electronic waste plastics application, self-healing materials for pavements, bio asphalt derived from biomass, and chip-seal application. Sponsors of his research program include: National Science Foundation (NSF), U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (U.S. EPA), Michigan Department of Environmental Quality (MDEQ), Federal Highway Administration, Michigan Department of Transportation (MDOT), Minnesota Department of Transportation (MnDOT), Minnesota Local Road Research Board (LRRB), and Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT).

His contribution to pavement and materials research has been featured in newspapers, magazines, and other media. Dr. You has published over 300 papers in peer reviewed journals and conference proceedings. These publications include prestigious journals such as the Journal of the Transportation Research Board published by the National Academy of Sciences, the ASCE Journal of Materials in Civil Engineering, ASCE Journal of Engineering Mechanics, ASCE Journal of Computing in Civil Engineering, Road Materials and Pavement Design, and Construction and Building Materials. In addition, he has also delivered over 180 presentations worldwide.

Dr. You has been an effective teacher with his unique teaching philosophy. His teaching interests include transportation materials, pavement design, asphalt pavement engineering, and transportation engineering. In 2009, he received the ASCE fellowship of Excellence in Engineering Education (ExCEEd), and he attended the Teaching Workshop at the United States Military Academy at West Point. In 2018, he was named as Outstanding Advisor in Department of Civil & Environmental Engineering at Michigan Tech.

Dr. You is an active member in the professional community. He has served as an associate editor for the American Society of Civil Engineers’ (ASCE) Journal of Materials in Civil Engineering since 2008, and for the Journal of Traffic and Transportation Engineering (English Edition, published by Elsevier) since 2017. He is also a member of the Board of Directors for the International Journal of Pavement Research and Technology, Malaysian Construction Research Journal, and the Journal of Traffic and Transportation Engineering (published by Elsevier). He has been involved in professional services for many professional organizations including: ASCE (Chair of Mechanics of Pavements Committee and Chair of Bituminous Materials Committee), the Transportation Research Board (TRB), Association of Asphalt Paving Technologists (AAPT), International Society of Asphalt Pavements (ISAP), American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS), and International Union of Laboratories and Experts in Construction Materials, Systems and Structures (RILEM). He has also provided professional services to the Federal Aviation Administration, U.S. Army, National Cooperative Highway Research Program, U.S. EPA, and NSF as a grant reviewer. Services were also provided to agencies in Canada, France, Spain, and Switzerland as well as in over 20 technical committees in various organizations. Dr. You has reviewed technical papers for over 35 journals and has edited four ASCE special publication books. Currently, he is a guest editor for quite a few prominent journals.  In 2004 and 2005 he was a recipient of the U.S. Department of Transportation’s Dwight David Eisenhower Transportation Faculty Fellowship.
