My academic and professional interests mainly constitute the broad theme of Numerical Simulation. My Ph.D. dissertation is a first study that looks at the effect of wall and backfill soil deterioration on corrugated metal culvert stability.

Through my Academic and Industrial years of experience, I have been using the general Finite Element package ABAQUS (and many other commercial packages), in modeling Soil-Structure Interaction of Steel and Concrete Buried Structures. Committed to mastering the physical intuition and the mathematical insight before deciding what the appropriate inputs are, and prior to interpreting and judging the Numerical Analyses outputs.
