Personal profile

Biography

Dr Mayer Melhem is a structural engineering researcher and doctoral teaching assistant in the Department of Civil Engineering at Monash University. He received his PhD in Structural Engineering at Monash University, previously graduating with a double Bachelor of Civil Engineering and Bachelor of Biomedical Science from the same university. Mayer has previously been involved in biomedical science research, but his current research interests lie in structural reliability methods, particularly in safety-based bridge design and network risk management of heavy vehicle access to existing highway bridge networks.  He has presented at a number of international and national conferences on his research. As a structural engineer, he has worked on a number of highway bridge assessment and structural performance monitoring projects.
