Research interests

My research is aimed to understand, predict and improve strength and durability of geomaterials, such as concrete, rock and soils by combining analyses and experiments of physical processes on several scales. I am particularly interested in understanding how fracture interacts with fluid mass transport and heat transfer and predicting its influence on durability of geomaterials. I am also interested in understanding the response of materials and structures subjected to impact loading. My modelling approaches and results are described in our publications.

I am currently Senior Lecturer at the School of Engineering at the University of Glasgow. I have studied Civil Engineering at the RWTH Aachen in Germany, Structural Engineering at Chalmers University of Technology in Göteborg, Sweden and was awarded a PhD in Structural Engineering at the same university. I worked as a researcher at EPFL in Lausanne, Switzerland and at Northwestern University in Evanston, USA.

I am looking for motivated students with interest in engineering and computational mechanics to join my research group. Please have a look here for the current opportunities.
