Research interests
Her research involves experimental investigations of the behaviour of geomaterials, including localized failure and hydro-mechanical coupling. In particular she has been working with complex soils, such as fissured clays part of Flysch formations and dredged submarine sediments. Applications involve principally geo-environmental engineering (e.g. landslides; remedial solutions for polluted sites) and civil engineering (e.g. soil/structure interaction). She has been using a quite range of soil testing apparatus, including plane strain compression device and high pressure stress path systems equipped with local transducers. She applied advanced methods to detect the onset of localized deformation and failures such as Digital Image Correlations and x-ray tomography.
