Personal profile

Research interests

  • Development and characterisation of cementitious materials (composite cement) for extreme environments.
  • Geomechanical and flow behaviour of rocks and cementitious material under extreme subsurface pressure and temperature conditions.
  • Tackling air pollution and developing gas containment systems for contaminated soils.
  • CO2 sequestration.
  • Mitigation and remediation of gas leakage from subsurface storage sites.
  • Wellbore integrity.
  • Climate change and Disaster Risk Reduction (RRD).
  • Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA).
  • Landslide and slope stability: development of advanced monitoring system and mitigation strategies.
  • Application of digital technologies in Geo-Engineering.
  • Building Information Modelling (BIM) and enhancing health and safety in civil engineering projects.


I am a Lecturer in the Department of Mechanical, Aerospace and Civil Engineering at the University of Manchester. I joined Manchester in 2017 following a 3-year postdoctoral research in the Department of Earth Science and Engineering at Imperial College London. At Imperial, I worked on several European and EPSRC funded projects related to mitigation and remediation of CO2 leakage from storage sites and wellbore integrity. I have been a Visiting Researcher at Imperial College London since I joined Manchester.  

I completed my PhD on geological carbon sequestration in 2017 at Cardiff University where I designed and developed a high pressure high temperature laboratory facility for studying the gas flow and interactions in geo-materials including a high pressure manometric sorption cell and a triaxial core flooding setup with temperature control systems.

I am an experimentalist with expertise and interests in various aspects of geoenvironmental engineering and subsurface energy including gas transport and reactions in porous materials, soil and rock mechanics, gas emission from contaminated soils and remediation and mitigation techniques for protecting subsurface environment.

I have over five years of industry experiences within the consulting engineers, working on a range of projects related to Geotechnical Engineering, Mining and Engineering Geology.
