Ali Abu-Yosef, Ph.D., P.E.
Ali is a structural engineer with a penchant for everything corroding and all that is oxidized. Whether chloride-contaminated parking garages or microbe-infested bridge piles, Ali's experience includes examination of the usual and unusual corrosion suspects. Since joining Pivot, he has performed forensic investigations of structural failures, evaluated service life of critical infrastructure, and designed state-of-the-art structural health monitoring systems.
At the University of Jordan, Ali received a B.S. in Civil and Environmental Engineering. He later obtained a M.S. and Ph.D. in Structural Engineering at The University of Texas at Austin, where his graduate research helped develop a novel class of low-cost wireless sensors that enable early detection of corrosion in reinforced concrete structures. In addition to publishing multiple technical peer-reviewed articles and conference proceedings, Ali is also an active member in a number of American Concrete Institute (ACI) and National Association of Corrosion Engineers (NACE) technical committees.
When not fighting the good fight against corrosion, Ali can be found exploring new trails, collecting race bibs, or con la familia hunting for the best plate of Tex-Mex in town.
