I am a Senior Lecturer in the School of Civil Engineering and Surveying at the University of Portsmouth.

Prior to my current position I worked for Arup as a Graduate Structural Engineer, Alan Wood & Partners as an Engineer, and Avize as a Principal Engineer.

I spent three years (2012-15) undertaking a PhD in blast effects on steel structures at the University of Southampton.

Research Interests


Blast interaction with buildings

Structural response to blast loading & static loading

Explosive fireball gauging

Fire / Thermal:

Explosive thermal loading

Thermo-mechanical response of structures under fire /thermal loading

Fire damage on cladding panels

Synergistic Response to Thermal and Blast Loading:

Combined response of strucutures to thermal and blast load

Steel material response to combined high strain, strain rate and thermal loading
