I graduated with a BEng (Hons) from Cardiff University in 2000 in Civil Engineering and obtained an MSc and PhD degrees in 2001 and 2004 respectively from Cardiff University working the microstructural properties of Ultra High Performance Fibre Reinforced Cementitious Composites and more specifically those affecting workability and self-desiccation. I then moved to Greece and worked as trainee civil engineer in order to obtain my professional engineering licence. In 2005 joined University College London to undertake an MSc in Project and Enterprises Management and following the completion of the course I joined Cardiff University to perform research funded by Laing O’Rourke on the behaviour of precast slab elements under positive and negative bending.

In 2007 I joined University of Cyprus (UCY) as postdoctoral fellow on a €255,000 project investigating experimentally and analytically the fresh and hardened properties of self-compacting concrete. In 2011, following the completion of the project at UCY, I took up a visiting lectureship in Frederick University Cyprus and in 2013 returned to the UK to join University of Cambridge as Research Associate. Between 2013 and 2016 I worked on Materials For Life consortium developing microcapsules, and other encapsulation techniques, for self-healing applications in cement-based composites. In October 2016, I joined Cambridge Graphene Center exploring the potential of using graphene in the manufacture and production of the next generation hybrid construction materials.


Since July 2017, I joined the University of Hertfordshire as Senior Lecturer in Civil Engineering with a focus on Innovative Construction Materials. I am currently the head of Civil Engineering & Built Environment group.
