Eligible to supervise Masters and PhD - email supervisor to discuss availability.


My research covers aspects of advanced materials, damage detection, biomechanics, aerospace and defence. I have extensive experience with theoretical modelling and experimental methods. My research projects span a wide range of cross-disciplinary topics including, bone fracture and fatigue, multi-scale modelling of bone microdamage, fatigue of aircraft structures, and damage detection in composites with fibre optics to name just a few.

Dr Codrington is a research lead with the Structural Integrity Research Group (SIRG). The SIRG is a South Australian based collaborative focused on delivering Defence structural integrity and related research, testing, and training.
