Personal profile

Personal Statement

I am a Research Associate in the department of Civil & Environmental Engineering working on the influence of fungal treatment on the hydraulic and mechanical behaviour of sands.

Research Interests

The application of biological techniques (involving bacteria, fungi, vegetation) as low-carbon alternative for ground improvement, soil conservation (erosion control), remediation of contaminated lands and wastewater treatment.
