Biography

Dr. Torres, a native of New Mexico, joined the Department of Engineering Technology (Concrete Industry Management program) in August 2013 and is presently teaching Construction Project Management and Scheduling. Prior to joining Texas State University, Dr. Torres worked as a Materials Engineer for the Air Force Research Laboratory where his doctoral research focused on the microstructural characterization of mid-IR fiber optics under a reduced gravity environment. Dr. Torres’ expertise led him to be the primary investigator of materials processing on board NASA’s zero-gravity aircraft. Dr. Torres has also spent time working as a structural design engineer for large construction projects. 


Research Interests

Material science involving design and alteration of woven carbon fiber composites, FRP materials, structural analysis, high stress mitigation, bi-axial testing, ultra high performance concrete, thermal/convective analysis, finite element modeling, zero-gravity experimentation, fiber optic and glass technology, and fracture analysis.
