Anthony is a Lecturer/DECRA Fellow in School of Civil Engineering and Built Environment.
Dr Anthony’s research focuses on Structural Fire Engineering. His research is addressing the Fire Resistant and Lightweight Wall Systems using innovative stud sections and cement blocks, enhanced gypsum plasterboards and insulations with a view of improving the Fire Resistance Rating of wall systems.

His current project aims to develop fire safe building solutions with lightweight wall block and enhanced fire resistance characteristics for use in wall systems in the emerging mid-rise cold-formed steel buildings and in bushfire safe rooms.
