I am a Postdoctoral Research Associate at the School of Engineering and Information Technology at the University of New South Wales, Canberra. I completed my PhD in the Structural Engineering from the University of New South Wales, Sydney. I also have experience in Civil Engineering construction. I am currently working on the experimental and numerical investigation of composite beam and column utilizing Engineered Cementitious Composites, Lightweight concrete and high strength steel. My research interests include steel-concrete composite structures, finite element modelling, high performance materials, protective structures, prefabricated prefinished volumetric construction and sustainable construction.
