Personal profile

Research interests

Prof. Paine carries out research in the area of smart and innovative concrete technology.  Some of his current research includes:

  • bacteria-based self-healing concrete,
  • self-sensing concrete using graphene and other sensors,
  • electrically conductive concrete, and
  • nanotechnology enhanced concrete.

He also carries out research in recycled aggregates, low carbon cements and geopolymers.

He is currently the Bath PI on the £5m EPSRC Programme Grant on “Resilient Materials for Life (RM4L)” (www.rm4l.com) and he was the Bath PI on its predecessor Materials for Life (M4L)”. From 2011 to 2014 he led Bath’s involvement in the EU funded FP7 research “FIBCEM” to develop nanotechnology enhanced extruded fibre reinforced foam cement (www.fibcem.com).

He has also received funding from other sources including: BBSRC, NERC, the Royal Academy of Engineering, the British Council, Government departments, WRAP, and industry.

He is currently the Director of Research for Architecture and Civil Engineering and the Deputy Director of the BRE Centre for Innovative Construction Materials.
