Research interests

I obtained my Master's degree in Civil Engineering with a specialization in structural design from the Budapest University of Technology and Economics in Hungary.

Currently, I am working towards my PhD degree; mainly focusing on the effects of elevated curing temperatures on the basic (or autogenous) shrinkage in rapid hardening concretes.

In the past, I worked extensively within the area of strengthening of concrete structures by means of cementitious binders in combination with fiber reinforced polymers.

Research interests

  • Modeling of shrinkage
  • High-performance concretes
  • Strain Hardening Cementitious Composites (SHCC)
  • Tensile and fracture behavior of cementitious strengthening materials
  • Concrete technology
  • Strengthening and repair of concrete structures 

Professional expertise

  • Finite element modeling
  • Design of reinforced concrete and composite structures
  • Design of glued laminated timber (glulam) structures
  • Scientific writing
