Research Fellow in Civil Engineering, University of Leeds

I am a researcher in cementitious materials in the School of Civil Engineering at the University of Leeds. I have a degree in Materials Science from the University of Oxford, and have also worked for the buildings design consultancy BuroHappold Engineering.

My research goal is to work out how we can use our natural resources in the smartest way to provide robust, sustainable materials for our housing and infrastructure.
