Sumi's research focuses on the design and development of new technologies for mixing soil targeted to improve ground conditions. Optimizing the application of environmentally safe soil stabilizers will significantly enhance the strength and performance of problematic soft soils. Sumi also investigates thermal-hydraulic-mechanical behaviour of engineered barrier materials to improve their role in containment systems for highly toxic waste.
