I am a research engineer interested in understanding, modelling and optimising of the mechanical response of materials. I work as Assistant Professor (UK Lecturer) at Imperial College London, where I lead the Mechanics of Infrastructure Materials Lab

 

 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. Outstanding students are welcome to inquire regarding PhD and MSc Thesis opportunities.
