Career Summary

Biography

Since completing my PhD in 2000, I have worked as a postdoctoral research fellow at The University of Calgary, Canada (2000-2001) and then as a Lecturer and Senior Lecturer in the School of Engineering, The University of Newcastle (2001 - present). During both of these appointments my research has addressed the areas of structural behaviour of unreinforced masonry construction and the strengthening/retrofitting of existing unreinforced masonry and reinforced concrete structures.
