Bhavna is interested in the use of sustainable construction materials in design and engineering. She uses an interdisciplinary approach to investigate and develop natural materials, such as bamboo, for structural use. Areas of research include structural and small scale experimental testing, modelling and design. Through a multi-scale approach, her research forms the basis for non-conventional materials to be utilised and accepted in design and engineering practice. She holds degrees in Structural engineering (PhD 2010, M.S. 2006), Architectural History (MA 2003) and Architecture (BSc 2001).
