Department Research

Geomechanics for Geo-Engineering and Sustainability (GGES) Lab

The Geomechanics for Geo-Engineering and Sustainability (GGES) Lab is working on cutting-edge research at the intersection of rock mechanics, energy, biotechnology and sustainability. Our group investigates mechanical responses in microbial-rock interactions, and the multiscale failure and behavior of rocks and rock-like materials. Based on laboratory tests, our group further develops theoretical and numerical models to predict and mitigate geotechnical-related hazards triggered by natural or man-made causes at multiscale, ultimately elucidating these processes' impact at the field scale. 

Our research areas of interest are: experimental and computational rock mechanics, the engineering behavior of rocks, biogeomechanics, carbon geo-sequestration, geo-energy development & underground energy storage, geotechnical-related hazard mitigation, thermal-induced rock deformation, underground drilling and excavation, the stability of slopes and underground openings.


2022 - 2023 Algal Removal from NJ Lakes

Wen Zhang's research group works with New Jersey water conservation agencies, lake commissions and industrial partners to develop microbubble-enabled air-flotation/filtration platforms to replenish water quality and remove harmful algal blooms (HABs) from New Jersey Lakes. This work is funded by the NJDEP (Award number: WM20-040). The group was awarded $500,000 from NJDEP to work in partnership with the Meadowlands Environmental Research Institute (MERI) and BRISEA Inc. to design and launch a mobile floating platform to mechanically remove and mitigate harmful algal blooms at Branch Brook Lake and Deal Lake, two New Jersey lakes that are negatively affected by algal blooms. The team proposes to apply filtration and air flotation, as well as unique engineering technologies to mechanically remove HABs from water. The boat, depending on the designed treatment capacity, has flexible and tunable dimensions and functionalities such as, water quality monitoring. The purged air micro-nano bubbles in the air flotation process also aim to replenish water with dissolved oxygen that may abate anoxia and hypoxia. This three-year demonstration project will involve three major stages: designing the boat’s specifications, including size and power with intensive water quality and algal characterization; building and deploying the boat in two lakes for demonstration testing; verifying its performance of algae removal and evaluating its impact on the lakes' water quality and restoration.

Lara Rios ’23, Student Speaker at NJIT's 2022 Celebration

Celebration is s festive evening of dinner, dancing and live entertainment which provides support for scholarships and honoring individuals for achievements of great benefit to New Jersey and our nation, and organizations that have been exceptional in their commitment to the university’s mission.

Lara Rios is a senior enrolled in the Newark College of Engineering at who studies civil engineering. She was raised in Bloomfield, New Jersey, and currently resides there with her parents, Jairo and Laura, and two brothers, Jared and Liam.

When filling out college applications, Rios' aptitude for math and physics led her to choose civil engineering, a largely white, male-dominated field. However, this path was difficult to visualize for a half-Chilean and half-Puerto Rican woman with very few engineers in her family, let alone women engineers. Her father, an NJIT alum and structural engineer, provided a piece of that picture. His influence on Lara’s life was the other reason she chose civil engineering. As a first-generation college student, her father had to overcome many obstacles including poverty and living in unsafe neighborhoods. Going to his alma mater to follow in his footsteps was her way of honoring him for all the sacrifices and struggles he endured while providing for his family. Both of Rios’s parents constantly inspire her to be the determined and hard-working student she is today. 

Thanks to scholarships from NJIT, Avanade and the Albert Dorman Honors College, Rios has been able to focus on her studies and work diligently to create a better environment for her peers. As a commuter, she knew the struggles they face and joined the Student Senate in her first year. By spending four semesters on the student organizations committee, she saw that these organizations were the key to engaging students. During her junior year, Rios served as Director of Student Organizations, the committee which revived clubs that had become inactive during the pandemic, and she created a system to encourage and award student organization activities. Later inspired by a student government conference, she sought to create a diversity and inclusion position in the Student Senate. 

This year Rios, serves in that role, taking a more targeted approach to continuing her efforts to foster a sense of belonging among her peers. With the administration at her side, she will use this position to and provide students with any resources they need. Rios is also president of the Society of Hispanic Professional Engineers (SHPE), whose purpose is to empower the Hispanic community to realize its full potential. So far she has led her board members in hosting events for Hispanic Heritage Month, a “How To” professional workshop series, and a trip to the SHPE National Conference, in which 30 students where sponsored to attend. Following graduation, Rios hopes to continue her education by pursuing a Ph.D. in structural engineering and eventually take a full-time role at an engineering firm.

Jitendra Kewalramani, Placed Second in

2022 New Business Model Competition

Hosted annually during the fall semester, the New Jersey Innovation Acceleration Center runs the New Business Model Competition. Many entrepreneurs submit practical innovative ideas for review by a panel of judges with the chance to win a $3,000 summer fellowship to pay them to work on their idea. Although submission is free, each submission must follow the guidelines of the NAVC program.

The purpose is to showcase a product within the technology discipline. The participants had seven minutes to convince a panel of six judges, followed by a five minutes Q&A session, that their product was the most innovative. For the competition, the participants were asked to define a product and elaborate on its benefits and commercial usefulness. The participants identified the target audience and market size for the product, as well as its feasibility. The event offers two tracks in which participants can compete as students or as community members in N.J.

Kewalramani was a finalist in this event in 2019, where he presented the potential for commercializing his research topic: high-frequency ultrasound for environmental remediation. However, at that time, the product was new and didn't fully demonstrate its value to customers. After taking notes from the judges and some refinement, he returned and won 2nd place.

Kewalramani said, "For the last three years, I worked on developing my product, evaluated its market potential, found an early adopter and filed a patent application. We are currently in the stage of developing a field prototype for demonstration."
