Personal profile

Research Interests

Research & knowledge exchange professional specialising in structural integrity studies with numerical and experimental analysis on industrial applications. My research interests lie in the field of steel-framed structures and lightweight structure , including cold-formed steel, stainless steel portal frames and composite construction. My research is dominated in trying to understand fundamental structural behaviour, for which I employ a combination of numerical modelling and full-scale testing.
