Civil & Natural Resources Engineering E311
My research interests are linked to different aspects of the 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. Currently, I am developing new research interests in the areas of Building Information Modelling (BIM), parametric design and digital technologies (e.g. AR) to improve the architecture, engineering and construction industry; the application of sustainable materials and 3D printing in architectural, structural and humanitarian engineering.
