Dr. Dimitri Feys, an associate professor of civil engineering, has been named a Fellow of RILEM, the International Union of Laboratories and Experts in Construction Materials, Systems and Structures.

He was presented with the honor during the 77th RILEM Annual Week in Vancouver, Canada.

He joins Dr. Kamal Khayat, S&T’s vice chancellor for research and innovation and the Vernon and Maralee Jones Professor of Civil Engineering, as the second S&T faculty member to be named a RILEM Fellow. Khayat was awarded this honor in 2015 and was then honored with the organization’s lifetime achievement award in 2019.

Feys joined Missouri S&T’s faculty in  2013. He previously worked for Khayat as a postdoctoral fellow at the University of Sherbrooke in Canada. He is a construction materials expert, and his research often focuses on rheology, or the flow of matter.

He earned a Ph.D. in civil engineering from Ghent University in Belgium, as well as a combined master’s and bachelor’s degree in civil engineering.
