      Civil & Mechanical Engineering  
      Some of his current research topics include novel techniques to improve pervious concrete durability, improving water quality using permeable reactive concrete, internal curing using waste materials, incorporation of industrial by-products in cement and concrete, techniques to reduce cost and improve performance of soil structures in sub-Saharan Africa, and eliminating joints in concrete pavements.
      Our groups works on novel biomaterials to be used as adhesives, spacers, and bone cements. More recent work has been centered on the incorporation of antibiotics to this system. We also work on the synthesis and studies polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons.

      Degeneration or acute damage of nerve cells in the retina is a major cause of visual loss and blindness in the United States and worldwide. As diseases such as glaucoma, macular degeneration and diabetic retinopathy affect significant and increasing portions of the U.S. population, including minorities affected by disparities in health care delivery, determining causes, mechanisms of action and subsequently potential treatment strategies will contribute to improving health care, health and performance requiring visual tasks. Dr. Koulen’s research is focused on developing new treatment strategies for diseases that damage nerve cells in the central nervous system and the eye. Link to publications:
