I am a Senior Lecturer in Civil Engineering at the School of the Built Environment and Architecture. I joined LSBU in 2021 having previously worked for 20 years in the Construction Industry and studied in Rome, University of Tor Vergata" and in London at UCL. I teach civil and structural engineering to both Undergraduate and Postgraduate students.

My research interests include sustainable materials, structural optimization, complex geometry and modular construction.

Since joining LSBU in September 2021, I have been strengthening my relationship with industry leaders to enhance LSBU's students' experience and explore opportunities for collaboration.

I am currently involved in research into more sustainable materials, curved crease long span structure optimization and modular construction also collaborating with the University of Rome "Tor Vergata" and industry consultants.
