Research interests

My research activities at the University of Cambridge is in the area of Mechanics of Adhesive Joints. In center for micromechanics, my role is to investigate and understand the fracture mechanics of adhesively bonded joints in primary structures in shipbuilding.  My previous research background is on mechanics of bioinspired and biological composites such as bone and nacre.
