Personal profile

Research interests

My research areas are ice engineering (ice mechanics/fracture) and offshore wind power in freezing sea areas. I study the behavior and failure of ice under different loading scenarios and over wide range of timescales. Understanding how ice fails is crucial to ensure safe activities in the Arctic, Antarctic and ice-heavy regions: building of offshore structures (like wind turbines, bridges, etc.), navigation (ships and icebreakers) and transportation (minerals, oil, etc.).
