I graduated from Imperial College with a first class Bachelor of Engineering degree in Civil Engineering in 1989. I then undertook research in the same department and got my doctorate in 1993. After three further years at Imperial I came to Exeter in 1995 as a lecturer. I became a senior lecturer in 2003. I am a Chartered Engineer, Chartered Mathematician and Chartered Scientist, a Member of the Institution of Structural Engineers and a Member of the Institute of Mathematics and Its Applications. I am the Programme Lead for Civil Engineering.
My research interests are in the application of the theory of elastic stability to structures i.e. nonlinear structural mechanics. In particular I am interested in the study of localized buckling patterns. Current research fronts include:
- Double-scale perturbations;
- Variational methods;
- Extensions to the Rayleigh-Ritz and Galerkin techniques;
- Application of solitary-wave-type solutions to structural problems;
- Multi-modal homoclinic solutions (multi-humped localizations as soliton interactions). Use of exponential asymptotics.
- Modelling of elastic tubes in bending: localization and kink formation.
