Dr.  Mbaki Onyango is U.C. Foundation Associate Professor at the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga (UTC). She joined UTC in 2010 after graduating with a Ph.D. in Transportation Engineering from Kansas State University and Masters in Highway Engineering from the University of Birmingham in the United Kingdom. Dr. Onyango teaches transportation and civil engineering classes and conducts research in transportation, mechanistic pavement design, pavement maintenance and preservation, and construction materials. She has been working closely with Tennessee Department of Transportation (TDOT) and the Oakridge National Laboratory in Knoxville Tennessee. Some of her projects include evaluation of Open Graded Friction Course (OGFC) in Tennessee; pavement markings; Traffic calibration for the Mechanistic Empirical Pavement Design Guide (MEPDG) for the state of Tennessee; evaluation of the use of polyurethane material for levelling interstate highways in Tennessee and evaluation of geogrids reinforcement in flexible pavements using Accelerated Pavement Testing (APT), and design of high early strength fiber reinforced concrete.
