Dr Matthew DeJong’s research interests lie broadly in the field of structural engineering, but are primarily focused in the areas of earthquake engineering and masonry structures. Regarding earthquake engineering, this includes interest in rocking structures, damage-control design, analytical modelling, fundamental dynamics, and low-cost solutions for the developing world. Regarding masonry structures, this includes interest in structural collapse, retrofit methods, settlement, soil-structure interaction, laser-scanning, limit analysis, and discrete element modelling.
