Dana Daneshvar


Dana is currently a Ph.D. student and university assistant at the Civil Engineering Department of the TU Wien. His main area of research lies in layered concrete-concrete composites with emphasis on fracture analysis, time-dependent properties, sustainable infrastructure materials, ultra-high-performance concrete materials, and sensor based structural health monitoring. Dana was recently recognized as one the top 30 under 30 at TU Wien in 2023. He was awarded the Austrian Marshall Plan Scholarship and spent 6 months research visit at Princeton University to conduct the research on the robotic additive manufacturing of bio-inspired cementitious materials.

Prior to joining the TU Wien, he received his master’s degree in civil engineering from Sharif University of Technology. In his master thesis, Dana worked on developing damage tolerant cold mix asphalts (CMAs) modified with cement and crumb rubber. He also obtained his bachelor’s degree from Ferdowsi University of Mashhad with the “Rank 1st”. Aside from research, Dana enjoys swimming, traveling, and watching science documentaries.
