I am an Associate Professor of Structural Engineering at the University of Ottawa. My research focuses on the experimental testing and numerical modelling of reinforcement corrosion and associated mechanics of damage build-up in reinforced concrete structures. I am particularly interested in integrating material deterioration models with current methods of structural analysis. I am also involved in the development of wind-uplift resistance design guidelines of roofing systems and components. I am a member of the Canadian Society for Civil Engineering (CSCE) and the American Concrete Institute (ACI).

Prior to joining the University of Ottawa in 2002, I worked as a researcher at the Institute for Research in Construction of the National Research Council in the area of rehabilitation of urban infrastructure, where I was involved in the development of performance prediction tools for flexible pavement structures subjected to both environmental and traffic-induced loading.
