I’m a Senior Lecturer in Structural Engineering at the School of Engineering in the University of Edinburgh. My research interests lie within a broad range of topics in theoretical structural mechanics and soft condensed matter, and materials modelling. My main focus is to understand how mechanical properties, that an elastic body acquires, arise from a careful design of its internal geometry in addition to its material composition. These questions are relevant to topics such as shape formation in nature, biomechanics, mechanics of materials and structures, controlled design and functionality of thin plates and shells.
