Research Expertise:
Fatigue and Fracture; Structural Mechanics; Sustainability

I have two major research thrusts. The first focus looks at the interaction between material and structural behaviors, usually in respect to durability and failure. Examples of this have been fatigue of structural components, behavior or structural components, and failure of 3D printed objects. The second focus is on sustainability in the built environment.  Examples of this have been facilities management, clean energy, and the environmental impact of alternative power trains for cars.
