My research focuses on the development of structural health monitoring techniques for engineering structures. This involves the development of sensor nodes that are cheap, low-power, and reliable. Furthermore, the focus is on the development of lightweight/smart bio-inspired structures, 4D printed self-morphing structures and multi-functional materials. The techniques are applied to develop materials that are light-weight, more durable, sustainable, and self-sensing.
