I am a Professor in Structural Engineering with research focus on condition assessment and strengthening of structures. I work part time as a professor.

Research Interests

  • Strengthening and upgrading of structures, in particular concrete structures
  • Assement
  • Life cycle cost analysis
  • Field testing of structures
  • Full scale testing
  • Fatiuge
  • Prestressing
  • The use of polymer composites in construction, e.g. reinforcement, strengthening, structures

 

Professional Expertise

  • Assessment of structural capacity of concrete structures
  • Design of strengthening of concrete structures using FRPs
  • Management of field testing and monitoring of structures
  • Management of research and industrial projects
  • Project Management
