Cise’s research aims to contribute to a sustainable built environment through the development of innovative and functional construction products with high performance and durability. In her work, she focuses on the use of waste materials, carbon sequestration, recycling, self-healing and 3D printing processes involving cement-based mixes. Within these topics, she is interested in studying the relationship between reaction mechanisms, mechanical performance and microstructural development, as well as the environmental impacts of various binder systems and materials.
Cise joined Glasgow as a Reader in Smart Infrastructure Materials in 2020. Prior to this, she completed her PhD at the University of Cambridge (2009-2012). She worked as a postdoctoral associate at the Concrete Sustainability Hub of Massachusetts Institute of Technology (2012-2013) and a lecturer at Nanyang Technological University (2013-2020), where she established her research group on the development of novel binders and sustainable construction products.
