Dr Matt O'Donnell

Biography

  • I graduated from the University of Warwick in 2007 with a BSc in Mathematics and Physics.
  • I went on to study Civil Engineering at UCL where I gained a distinction in both my GDip and MSc in 2009 - My research dissertation investigated the non-linear wave profiles generated in tuned sloshing dampers in order to predict their energy absorbing capabilities. 
  • I completed my PhD at the University of Bristol within ACCIS in 2014 where I investigated beneficial performance characteristics of non-symmetric composite laminates, specifically with application to stringer run-outs.
  • I became a teaching associate in Civil engineering in 2013 where I became unit director for the second year computational modelling unit. 
  • I began my post doctoral research post for HiPerDuCT in ACCIS in 2014. 
  • I became Lecturer in Composites structures in 2015 as part of the ACCIS research group and continue teaching in civil engineering.
