Research Interests

Professor Masic’s research focuses on the science-enabled engineering of sustainable construction materials for large-scale infrastructure innovation. His research group combines principles of bioinspired and archeological materials science with multi-scale chemical and physical characterization approaches to inform the design of sustainable materials for construction, energy, and the environment.

Professor Masic is the faculty founder of the MIT Refugee Action Hub (ReACT), an institute-wide effort to develop global education programs that target the needs of underserved communities, including refugees, migrants and economically disadvantaged populations. Visit to learn more.
