Research interests

I am a mechanical engineer and a materials science enthusiast. My main research interest is structural integrity: fatigue, fracture and creep. I use advanced techniques such as synchrotron X-ray tomography combined with digital volume correlation and finite element modelling to understand the physics of failure in a range of materials. I specialise in image-based solid mechanics in which I integrate full-field techniques such as digital image correlation and finite element formulation to measure engineering parameters for structural integrity. I study damage in ductile and quasi-brittle materials across the length scales from nanometers to component level.
