Charles started his career as a structural engineer designing and managing purpose-built structures before undertaking research at the University of Sydney.

Research project
His research interests fall in the fields of structural engineering and materials science. He has been active in deriving analytical solutions to predict the response of composite steel-concrete members subjected to time effects, such as creep and shrinkage. Recently, Charles started his PhD in the area of materials science with a particular interest at correlating macro-scale material properties to micro and nano-scale findings using high-resolution microscopy and microanalysis techniques. The microstructure and nanostructural analysis techniques will include: (1) conventional and high-resolution scanning and transmission electron microscopy, and (2) three-dimensional atom probe tomography. As part of his PhD research, he will also be working on the development and implementation of an inverse analysis technique aimed at identifying material parameters of metallic material systems based on results obtained from indentation tests. The inverse analysis procedure is currently being developed using FEA tools.
