Lecturer in Civil Engineering


I am a Lecturer in Civil Engineering at the University of Salford. I graduated from University of Moratuwa (Sri Lanka) with BSc Eng (Hons) in Civil Engineering. I spent a short term as resident/consultant engineer before embarking an academic career. I received my PhD in Structural Engineering from the University of Cambridge and moved the University of Salford to conduct an EPSRC funded research project on masonry arch bridges.

If you want to discuss ideas you may have for PhD study then please contact me.
