Projects per year
I carry out research in the area of smart and innovative concrete technology. Some of my current research includes:
- bacteria-based self-healing concrete,
- self-sensing concrete using graphene and other sensors,
- electrically conductive concrete, and
- nanotechnology enhanced concrete.
I also carry out research in recycled aggregates, low carbon cements and geopolymers.
I am currently the Bath PI on the £5m EPSRC Programme Grant on “Resilient Materials for Life (RM4L)” (www.rm4l.com) and I was the Bath PI on its predecessor Materials for Life (M4L)”. From 2011 to 2014 I led Bath’s involvement in the EU funded FP7 research “FIBCEM” to develop nanotechnology enhanced extruded fibre reinforced foam cement (www.fibcem.com).
I have also received funding from other sources including: NERC, the Royal Academy of Engineering, the British Council, Government departments, WRAP, and industry.
I am the Department Research Ethics Officer (DREO) for Architecture and Civil Engineering and the Director of Studies for the MSc in Civil Engineering: Innovative Structural Materials.
