Projects per year
I'm a structural engineer interested in efficient and sustainable use of materials in buildings. My specific areas of research include:
- The potential of shell structures to minimise material usage.
- Innovative structural use of low-carbon, natural materials.
- Sustainable re-use of existing buildings.
- Life cycle assessment and embodied carbon of structural materials.
- Optmisation of concrete structures.
- Textile-reinforced concrete.
