I graduated in Mechanical Engineering from Brunel University and undertook my doctoral research at the same institution in the area of bulk solids handling, gaining my PhD in 2003. Following a one year post-doctoral appointment in the field of numerical modelling at Brunel University I moved to City, University of London to work on an EPSRC funded project investigating the control of movements arising from deep basement construction. Following this I spent time working for a specialist geotechnical consultancy before returning to City, University of London as a Lecturer in 2007. I spent thirteen years at City, University of London finishing as Senior Lecturer and Deputy Head of Engineering.
Associate Head of School of Engineering and the Environment - Associate Professor
My research interests are focussed on the ground movements generated by urban construction and redevelopment. This extends to prediction of these movements, the influence they may have on existing (potentially aging) infrastructure and mitigation strategies. I use physical modelling as my primary research technique both at 1g and Ng (using a geotechnical centrifuge) supported by numerical analysis.
