Personal profile

Interests

I started my career by working at an Architectural Consultancy company in 2001 specialising in project management and structural retrofit. I took the offer to do a PhD at Queen's in 2002 and went on to develop a concrete test instrument that is now commercialised and marketed by Amphora NDT Ltd. After completing my PhD in 2007, I worked alongside optoelectronics researchers in developing fibre optic sensors for concrete structures. Since early 2008, I went on to specialise on Service Life Modelling of Concrete structures and became a lecturer in late 2008.

My work specialises on Management of Built Infrastructure. This involves condition assessment and management of bridges, piers, culverts and also developing a management strategy for new structures in extreme environments. I help clients in assessing the condition of their asset and develop a life cycle management plan. The same principle is also applied to buildings to improve the energy efficiency and reduce carbon footprint.

I recently completed an industrial secondment with Roads Service Northern Ireland supported by Royal Academy of Engineering which gives me a fantastic opportunity to put some of the theories into practice.

We recently organised the first Civil Engineering Research in Ireland conference at Riddel Hall on 28-29th August 2014. This was first event of the newly formed Civil Engineering Research Association of Ireland and I am the President of the association for 2014-16. Further details please visit www.cerai.net
