My research aims to understand the structural response of structural components and systems subjected to complex loading and to provide practical solutions for their assessment and design. Of particular interest are emerging construction technologies with the potential to lead the industry towards the sustainability and resilience paradigms such as massive engineered timber, motion-control devices and low-cost sensing technologies.
