Research Interests

Current Research Interests

    • Innovative timber and timber-composite members 
    • Finite-element modelling of structural members subjected to blast loads and impacts (e.g. ABAQUS, LS-DYNA, ANSYS, OpenSees, blastFOAM)
    • Behaviour of mass-timber structures under blast loads
    • Behaviour of light-frame wood structures under blast loads
    • Timber structures within a multi-hazard framework (e.g. fire, blast, seismic, etc.)
    • Ballistic behaviour and retrofitting of engineered wood products (EWPs)
    • Shock-tube testing and live explosion testing
    • Equity, diversity, and inclusivity (EDI) in Canadian engineering schools
