EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training in Future Infrastructure and Built Environment



Socrates Angelides is currently a PhD Student working under the supervision of Dr Talbot. He joined Cambridge in 2016 as part of the Future Infrastructure and Built Environment CDT. His research focuses on the blast response of glazed façades, developing analytical models for the post-fracture response of laminated glass. He studied MEng Civil Engineering at Imperial College and worked for 3 years as a structural engineer in the Oil and Gas industry designing offshore steel structures.
