Dr Becque joined the Department in 2011 after a 3 year period as a lecturer at the University of Sydney, where he also obtained his PhD in 2008. Prior to his PhD studies, he practiced as a design engineer for AECOM, specializing in the design of low-rise steel frame buildings, steel plate girder bridges and concrete tanks and water treatment facilities.
His key research interests include the stability of cold-formed steel and stainless steel structural elements, tri-axial concrete behaviour, connections in structural hollow sections and the application of FRP to strengthen concrete structures.
