Visiting Researchers


Dr. Takuro Mori

mori

Dr. Takuro Mori is Assistant Professor with the Research Institute for Sustainable Humanosphere, Kyoto University, Japan. His research interests are mainly focused on 1) development of high performance residential and non-residential timber buildings made of wood and wood-based composite materials, and 2) examination of bio-deterioration effect on structural performance of timber buildings.

Dr. Mori investigates use of lagscrewbolted connections in cross laminated timber (CLT) at WSTC from June to November 2013. 

Dr. Xiaojun Yang
