Eligible to supervise Masters and PhD (as Co-Supervisor) - email supervisor to discuss availability.

My PhD is focused on novel in-situ stress monitoring techniques using nonlinear guided waves.

My current research is focused on the measurement of crack closure and fatigue life evaluation in variable amplitude load sequences. My PhD thesis investigated the utilisation of guided waves - namely the fundamental edge wave mode - for defect and damage detection.
