My research interests revolve around the development of elegant, efficient and sustainable structures. I am passionate about developing innovative solutions for the built environment, bridging between academia and industry.
My current research focuses on the development of a new theory of reinforced concrete based on 'shear compliance', and the optimisation of reinforced concrete structures with respect to their mechanical and environmental performance.
My wider research interests include the 'riddle of shear failure', functionally graded concrete, high-performance cementitious composites, seismic engineering, tall building design, forensic engineering and failure analysis.
I was previously a Structural Engineer at Ove Arup & Partners.
I hold a Diplôme d'Ingénieur from École Spéciale des Travaux Publics, du Bâtiment et de l'Industrie de Paris, a Master's Degree from Politecnico di Milano and a PhD from the University of Cambridge. I also attended Stanford University as a visiting researcher.
