Personal profile

Personal Statement

I completed PhD and two years’ post-doctoral research at UCL in the areas of stress analysis, fatigue assessment, fracture mechanics modelling, non-destructive testing and underwater inspection reliability analysis for tubular welded joints in offshore jacket platforms.

Since then, I have worked in the UK marine and offshore industry for twenty years. At Kvaerner Oil and Gas Ltd, I performed the finite element analyses for North Sea offshore jacket platforms and risers. Being a chartered naval architecture Engineer, I had 18 years' classification society hull and statutory plan approval experiences on the design of various types of ships and offshore installations.  At ABS, I carried out the design review for compliance with applicable classification society Rules and statutory legislation for all types of vessels and floating units including ultra large container ships, gas carriers, oil & chemical tankers, FPSO conversions/new builds, offshore support vessels and FLNG etc. At LR, I performed the analysis and design review of various marine and offshore structures and was responsible for classification appraisal of the pump tower and containment system for many LNG carriers and FLNG unit built in HHI, DSME and SHI, which cover cargo tank structural strength, fatigue, sloshing, vibration, risk based inspection and survival condition assessments.

Since joining University of Strathclyde in 2018 as a research associate, I have been working on several research projects in areas of structural integrity of natural gas and carbon dioxide CO2 transport pipelines.

Research Interests

My research interests include global and local structural analysis, fatigue, fracture mechanics and dynamic/vibration analysis of various marine and offshore structures including LNG pump towers for LNG carriers and FLNG units and jackets for oil and gas platforms and offshore wind turbine foundation, and structural integrity of pipelines for transporting natural gas, carbon dioxide CO2 and hydrogen.

Teaching Interests

I teach the following modules:

1) NM513 and NM961, “Design and Construction of FPSOs”, to both the final year undergraduate MEng and postgraduate MSc students

2) NM962 “Advanced Marine Structures” module to MSc students

3) NM404/NM438 "Ship Structural Dynamics" to 4th year students

4) NM213 "Thermodynamics" Part 2 to 2nd year students

Furthermore, I provided guidance to a number of MSc and PhD students regarding their project work.
