Scholarships are available for international students with excellent academic records. Students with research interest in Green concrete  and composite structures are highly encouraged to apply for Ph.D.

I currently serve as the Civil Engineering Program coordinator and the Sustainable Infrastructure Research Group coordinator. I joined UNSW Canberra in 2012, just after finishing PhD at the University of Sydney.
My research theme is sustainable and resilient infrastructure, with the current focus is on

  • Green Concrete
  • Recycling waste as construction materials
  • Structures and materials under extreme conditions

I have practical experience as a Builder. It helped me to recognise that my expertise can be used to solve various local engineering and policy problems and directly contribute to society. Hence part of my research involves developing innovative solutions for various local engineering problems.
With more than 15 years of experience in Australia, I have developed expertise in advanced Concrete structure design, Steel structure design,  Timber structure design, and Hybrid structure design.

The aim of my research is to develop new technologies and approaches and provide recommendations for policymakers and practitioners to enhance the resilience and sustainability of infrastructure systems.

In my research on sustainable infrastructure, I strive to create infrastructure that is not only safe and reliable but also helps to reduce the carbon footprint and preserve natural resources for future generations. I investigate ways to design, build, and operate infrastructure systems that balance economic, social, and environmental sustainability.

The goal of my research on resilient infrastructure is to ensure that critical infrastructure, such as buildings, transportation systems, and communication networks, are designed and constructed in such a way that it can withstand and recover from natural and man-made disasters, such as earthquakes, hurricanes, fire or blast impacts.

My current research focus

  • Recycling waste as construction materials- from concept to practical application: Recent policy changes have incentivised the development of new uses of waste materials for the circular economy. Using waste as a construction material is often seen as an ideal solution for our waste problems. It takes considerable research to convert the idea into a practical application.
  • Structures and materials under extreme conditions: Various structures are often subjected to extreme conditions that are beyond the scope of the available design guidelines. The behaviour of the materials used under such conditions is not well understood. In absence of adequate guidelines, these structures are usually designed with a very high factor of safety, making them very expensive yet not necessarily safe. A detailed understanding of structural and material response under extreme conditions will enable economic and safe design
