Research Areas

My research is centred upon the use of fibres (steel, polypropylene or otherwise) in concrete. By adding fibres to concrete, the primary objective is to bridge cracks once they form and provide some post cracking resistance in tension. My research is experimental in nature and has also led to the development of simple physical-mechanical models which describe this behaviour in a wide range of applications. Some of these models have influenced and are included in national and local ordinances. 

I was awarded the 2017 National Bursary Award by the Concrete Institute of Australia for the best Australian PhD thesis in the field of concrete and cement based products and processes over the preceding two years.

Teaching Areas

I deliver lectures within the following subject areas:

  • Construction Methods
  • Structural Analysis & Design
  • Strength and Mechanics of Materials

In 2016 I was awarded a Vice Chancellor's Award for Teaching Excellence (Early Career).

Professional Organisations

I am a chartered member of Engineers Australia (Civil & Structural Colleges), and also serve on the Sydney division of the national committee for construction engineering run through Engineers Australia.

Education

Bachelor of Engineering (Civil) with Hons. 1 and University Medal.

Doctor of Philosophy.
