Research students

Ismail Mohsen Ibrahim Aldellaa
Ismail started his PhD at the University of Glasgow in 2019. His project aim is to investigate the influence of time dependence of concrete on corrosion-induced cracking. Before that, he has been working for 2 years with Civil Engineering Department at the College of Technical Sciences in Misurata, Libya and in 2016 he completed an MSc in Civil and Structural Engineering from the University of South Wales, UK.

Ifiok Ekop
Ifiok obtained his BSc in Building from the University of Uyo, and his MSc in Construction Technology from the University of Lagos, Nigeria. He started his PhD in 2020 and his research focuses on strengthening and repairing concrete structures with (carbon) fibre reinforced polymers.

Xiaowei Liu
Xiaowei started her PhD research at the University of Glasgow in 2020. Her PhD project focuses on the shock compression behaviors of reinforced concrete and developing a computationally efficient constitutive model for concrete subjected to multiaxial stress states. She was awarded an MSc in Structural Engineering from the Heibei University of Engineering, China. Before that, she worked for a construction company in China for two years.

Gumaa Abdelrhim
Gumaa started his PhD in 2020 on modelling the failure process of concrete structures. He was awarded an MSc in Structural Engineering from Heriot-Watt University, Edinburgh, United Kingdom. Before starting his PhD, Gumma was working as a faculty member at the University of Sirte in Libya in the Department of Civil Engineering in the area of Structural Engineering.

Zhou Chao
Zhou started his PhD in 2020 on modelling fibre reinforced concrete. He was awarded an MSc in Civil Engineering at the University of Glasgow. He also worked as a Structural Engineer for two years. He is interested in integrating material and structural design to optimise structural performance of concrete structures. Besides academic interest, he is also interested in percussion produced by the human body. He was in the top 16 of the UK beatbox champs 2018 and the champion of Scottish Beatbox World Cup 2018.
