Research Interests

My research focuses on understanding the strength, deformational characteristics, and failure mechanism of rock masses containing non-persistent discontinuities. During my work, I will be performing laboratory tests on 3D printed samples that mimic the behavior of weak sandstones and use Finite-Discrete Element Method to model their behavior.
