Andrew joined the group as a PhD student after graduating from The University of Sheffield with an MEng (Hons) in Structural Engineering and Architecture.
He researches how the properties of soils can be used to protect people from the effects of explosions and high-velocity fragments, including
- High-pressure characterisation of geomaterials
- Strain-rate effects in soils
- Moisture content variation in gabion structures
