In our group, we combine theoretical, computational and experimental methods to study the mechanical behaviour of materials. Our primary focus is on material degradation and multi-physics problems, with diverse applications in science and technology - from batteries to wind turbine structures. Take a look at who we are in the People tab; read more about some of our ongoing research activities in the Research tab; see our latest papers in the Publications tab; check our computational and experimental resources in the Facilities Tab; and feel free to download and use our Codes

There are numerous opportunities for establishing a connection and for joining the Mechanics of Infrastructure Materials Lab. Inquires are welcomed.
