Profile: 

Dr. Clouston teaches courses in structural wood design, material mechanics and bio-based composites to students of architecture, engineering and construction technology. Her research focuses on modeling and characterizing the probabilistic mechanical behavior of structural bio-based composite materials as well as innovative wood products and systems.  Research topics include: modeling of Structural Composite Lumber, mechanical behavior of bio-based composites (wood, laminated veneer bamboo, straw bale wall construction) and wood-concrete composite systems.

Dr. Clouston is a registered professional engineer (APEGBC) and a member of the American Society of Civil Engineers. She serves on numerous national review panels and committees and is founder of the UMass Professional Masters Option in Green Building
