Dr Shanaka Kristombu Baduge

Dr. Shanaka Kristombu Baduge is a postdoctoral research fellow of the Department of Infrastructure Engineering. Currently, he is the manager at CAMP.H (Centre for Advanced Manufacturing of Prefabricated Housing) funded by ARC and industry partners.

He received his Ph.D. from The University of Melboune and he completed his B.Sc. (Hons) Eng. degree at University of Moratuwa. His Ph.D. focused on developing new mix-design methods for very-high strength concrete (VHSC) (100-150 MPa) and developing theoretical methods for ductility design of VHSC columns for tall-buildings.

His research interests include prefabricated buildings, high-strength and high performance concrete, light-weight structural systems, nanomaterial and nanoscale testing for construction material, multiscale modelling of concrete, waste recycling and low-carbon building materials.
