RESEARCH INTERESTS

His research work mostly comprises the characterisation of the engineering behaviour of natural soft soils, using field and laboratory tests, with a particular interest in peat. He also has a strong interest in the behaviour of deep excavations in urban areas and on ground potential to deliver shallow geothermal energy. He has published some 40 peer reviewed journal papers on these topics. He regularly acts as a consultant mostly on projects involving construction on soft ground and on the construction of deep basements.
