My research work is oriented towards the understanding, modeling and optimization of the mechanical response of engineering materials.
IMPORTANT NOTE: From September 2019 I will be working at Imperial College London as Assistant Professor (UK Lecturer), leading the Mechanics of Infrastructure Materials Lab. I am searching for a PhD candidate, see details here: Advert
Please do not hesitate to get in contact if you think we could collaborate; I am very much open to new ideas and suggestions and I am keen to cooperate with other researchers in academia or industry. MSc Thesis projects are usually available for students (please send an e-mail to arrange a meeting).
