Personal profile

Personal Statement

I'm a Lecturer in Civil and Environmental Engineering and leader of the Civil Automation group in the same department.

My research interests relate to the development of sensors and automated systems for monitoring and repairing civil infrastructure. For more information, please see my group's website: http://personal.strath.ac.uk/m.perry/

Teaching Interests

CL132 Engineering Mechanics 1. This first year course teaches students how to derive, apply and understand relationships in continuum mechanics. We cover: stress and strain in three dimensions; ductile, brittle and plastic material stress-strain behaviour; how fluids react under external pressure; and hydrostatic equilibrium. 

CL313 Concrete Mix Design. This third year course provides students with an understanding of the methods that can be used to achieve a concrete mix with desired wet and cured properties. The course includes practical considerations of the cost, availability and environmental impact of standard and novel materials.

Professional Communication. This course provides students with skills and hands-on experience to improve their effectiveness in oral presentations, seminar engagement, report writing and displaying numerical data. Taught to students at the Shanghai University of Electric Power (SUEP) and Northeast Dianli University (NEDU) in China.

Fingerprint Fingerprint is based on mining the text of the person's scientific documents to create an index of weighted terms, which defines the key subjects of each individual researcher.
