ABE

I am a chartered civil engineer (CEng MICE) and a senior lecturer leading the BEng (civil engineering) at the University of Wolverhampton. I developed a good balance of technical, research, managerial, financial and sustainability skills and I am very keening in incorporating active learning into the delivered programs.

  • Incorporation of active learning (e.g. student response system) into the delivered programs;
  • Cement replacement materials, e.g. pulverized fuel ash, ground granulated blast furnace slag;
  • Early-age cement and GGBS hydration;
  • Use of construction and demolition waste as aggregate in concrete, for example, developing precast concrete products made with recycled construction and demolition waste;
  • Finite element modelling concrete and steel structures.
  • Cement replacement materials, e.g. pulverized fuel ash, ground granulated blast furnace slag;
  • Early-age cement and GGBS hydration;
  • The effect of climatic conditions on the early age strength development of concretes;
  • Use of construction and demolition waste as aggregate in concrete, for example, developing precast concrete products made with recycled construction and demolition waste;
  • Finite element modelling concrete and steel structures;
  • Stray current induced corrosion to reinforced concrete and reinforced concrete structures.
