Areas of expertise My research interests are diverse:

-Advanced soil mechanics laboratory testing with and without rotation of principal stress and strain axes (triaxial, true triaxial, directional shear cell, hollow cylindrical torsional apparatus).

- Laboratory equipment developments for small strain measurements (triaxial, hollow cylinder torsional apparatus, true triaxial).

-Fibre reinforced soils (experiments, modelling, in situ implementation).

-Soil liquefaction under dynamic and monotonic loading.

-Stiffness of soils.

-Time effects in sands.

-Crushing of granular soils.

-Localised deformation pattering in granular soils.

-Micromechanics description of granular soils.

-Seismic wave propagation through granular media.

-Structural dynamics of existing buildings: in situ investigations and seismic vulnerability assessment.

-Dynamic Structure-Soil-Structure Interaction.

-Dynamic interaction between soil and group of piles (long inclusions).

-Dynamic pile-soil-interaction in liquefiable soils.
