The aim of my research is to predict and improve the resilience and durability of structures and geomaterials, such as concrete, rock and stiff soils, by combining analyses and experiments of physical processes on several scales. I am particularly interested in understanding how fracture interacts with mass transport and heat transfer and predicting its influence on durability. I am also interested in understanding the response of materials and structures subjected to impact loading. Currently, my work is focused on the following topics:
I am very interested in collaborating with researchers working in the area of fracture and durability of heterogeneous materials. Please contact me if you are interested in my research.
