Dave brings almost 7 years of experience working at RISE in Sweden (recently known as SP). A graduate of The University of Edinburgh, he has an MEng in Structural Engineering with Architecture and a PhD in Structural Fire Engineering.
His research interests follow two tracks: structural fire engineering, where common themes include application of probabilistic methods and the study of the mechanics of structures in fire; and infrastructure resilience. He has experience of consultancy in the fire and risk engineering industry, as well as working collaboratively with researchers from many different fields.
Dave is very excited about continuing his research and contributing to UQ Fire and the School of Civil Engineering here at The University of Queensland.
