Pronouns: He/him
  • Doctoral Researcher

Research and expertise

I work in the School of Architecture, Building and Civil Engineering at Loughborough University.

My interests are:

  • Investigating the mechanical properties of 3D-printed concrete, and polymeric and functionally graded materials
  • Exploring the behavior of fiber-reinforced cementitious composites such as UHPC, UHPFRC, ECC, etc. both on the material and structural level
  • Behavior of structural concrete elements under elevated temperatures
  • Micro and nano-computed tomography of cementitious materials

Current research activity

  • Structural Design of Reinforced 3D-Printed Concrete Materials

I am a PhD student specializing in Structural Engineering.

My passion lies in investigating cutting-edge materials and technologies to tackle challenges in Civil Engineering, with a focus on areas such as ultra-high-performance concrete, engineered cementitious composites, metamaterials, fire safety engineering, and  additive manufacturing of concrete, polymers, and metals.
