Research interests

The aim of my research is to understand, predict and improve strength and durability of geomaterials, such as concrete, rock and soils by combining a virtual laboratory at multiple scales and experiments. 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 also worked as researcher at EPFL in Lausanne, Switzerland and at Northwestern University in Evanston, USA.

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