The ITI Research Engineering Group: Turning Infrastructure Problems into Unique Solutions

The ITI Research Engineering Group from Left to Right: Daniel Marro, David Kosnik, Mathew Kotowsky, and Daniel Hogan

The Institute employs an in-house engineering staff, the Research Engineering Group (REG) consisting of Chief Research Engineer Daniel Marron and two Research Engineers: David Kosnik and Mathew Kotowsky. REG personnel possess exceptional skills and experience in field deployment of advanced instrumentation techniques for monitoring civil infrastructure facilities. Their experience is applied to the three-fold mission of the ITI REG:

    • Support ITI-funded researchers and their students with instrumentation and communications expertise

    • Conduct the REG’s own deployment research into innovative instrumentation and monitoring techniques

    • Support other ITI technical program functions as necessary


The REG provides core support services across the ITI program, ensuring that state of the art monitoring and communications technologies are available for and deployed in ITI research applications. The REG also provides information technology support to the Institute and its administrative staff and is closely involved with the educational activities of the Institute.
