My research interests are linked to different aspects of buildings design (i.e. architectural, structural, materials selection, etc.) and buildings conservation. My previous research projects include the development of a low-invasive technique for the damage assessment of steel reinforcement in earthquake damage buildings; the effects of earthquakes on the mechanical and fatigue properties of steel reinforcement. I am leading a large research project on the use of 3D Concrete Printing (3DCP) in low- and medium-density residential buildings. The research aims to develop low-carbon concrete mixes and earthquake-resilient structural elements and systems suitable for 3DCP technologies. Currently taking PhD applications in the following topics:- Low-carbon 3D Concrete Printing materials- Design and FEM analysis of 3DCP structural elements- Experimental testing of 3DCP structural elements- Automation in constructionScholarships available to the right candidates.
