Christina Makoundou is a PhD researcher who focuses on developing advanced materials for road safety in urban infrastructures using recycled resources, especially end-of-life tyres (ELTs). Christina’s PhD project focused on incorporating large quantities of ELT rubber to design impact-absorbing asphalt pavements to protect vulnerable road users.
“Tyre rubber has many properties that make it suitable for roads in general, and using recycled material should be the goal wherever possible,”
