Born: 1971

Interests: Structural and seismic analysis, FEM, Numerical analysis

My research and professional interests focus on improving the structural computational methods for design of civil structures, industrial buildings and bridges. My research includes both computational and experimental techniques with emphasis on the development and application of nonlinear analysis of structural limit states, push-over analysis for seismic performance evaluatiaon of structures, finite element simulation of composite materials under ballistic impact, design and behavior of composite steel-concrete structures.

ResearcherID: B-2989-2008
