My current research is in the area of Structural Health Monitoring and Nondestructive Testing. I am interested in exploring the advantages of ultrasonic guided waves for material characterization, damage detection and condition monitoring in different types of structural elements and joints.
I am interested in using Guided Waves for damage detection and monitoring in structural elements and joints. Nonlinear guided waves have the ability to detect early stage damage without the limitations of linear guided waves. I conduct research exploring the advantages of nonlinear guided wave mixing.
