About Ideker

Dr. Jason H. Ideker is an Associate Professor in the School of Civil and Construction Engineering at Oregon State University. He joined the faculty in September of 2008 and in 2010 was recognized as the inaugural Kearny Faculty Fellow in CCE. Ideker received his Ph.D. from The University of Texas at Austin in May of 2008 in Civil Engineering. He also holds an M.S.E. from The University of Texas at Austin (2004) and a B.S.C.E. from the Georgia Institute of Technology in Atlanta, Georgia (2002).

His primary research interests are alkali-silica reaction in cement-based materials, concrete durability, early-age properties of concrete and the pursuit of high-performance civil engineering materials. He is also an internationally recognized expert in calcium aluminate cements and ettringite accelerated systems. Teaching materials science of concrete, concrete durability and green building materials courses to undergraduates and graduates is also an important focus for Ideker. He is heavily involved in ACI and ASTM.

Dr. Ideker works to bridge fundamental scientific research with real-world engineering solutions. He was one of the organizers of the 14th ICAAR Conference held in Austin, Texas in May of 2012. Dr. Ideker and Dr. Karen Scrivener started the Corvallis Workshop Series in 2011 to bring a premiere technical conference back to the field of cement-based materials (similar to the former Gordan Conference Series. In 2017 the 3rd Corvallis Workshop and 1st Doctoral Short Course were held in Corvallis with the theme Service Life Prediction of Concrete.
