My Research

awardI don’t write very often about my research on this blog.  The purpose in starting the blog was desire to contribute to better public understanding of engineering in general.  However, occasionally I include material related to my research activities and you can find these posts using the tag ‘MyResearch‘. For a list of my published papers go to my profile in Google Scholar.

My research is mainly in applied mechanics across size scales from material science to structural engineering, with a focus on aerospace, biology and nuclear applications, and a particular interest in computational model credibility, fidelity and validation in relation to digital twins.

Recently, I have coordinated two European Union projects within the Horizon 2020 Clean Sky 2 initiative and, as part of their dissemination programmes, I written a series of posts on these research activities.  You can find them at DIMES [Development of Integrated MEasurement Systems] and MOTIVATE [Matrix Optimization for Testing by Integration of Virtual And Test Environments]; as well as at their websites: &
