Alalea joined the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering as a PhD student in October 2014. Her research area is porous pavements and she is particularly interested in control of permeability degradation in pervious concrete.
Alalea is also part of the EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training (CDT) in Sustainable Civil Engineering.
Alalea holds a Masters of Engineering (MEng) degree in Civil Engineering from University College London (UCL) with First Class Honours.
Alalea has worked as an intern (placement student) at Mott MacDonald Consultancy firm during summer 2011-2013 and was awarded Mott MacDonald’s Charitable Trust bursary for two years in succession.
