Claudio's research focuses on the assessment of earthquake-triggered soil liquefaction. Claudio completed his PhD in Earthquake Engineering at the University of Canterbury, with a project on direct simple shear testing of Christchurch native fluvial soil deposits. Since then, Claudio has led a series of field investigations campaign for the assessment of the liquefaction susceptibility and resistance of relcamation fills in Wellington. Claudio's efforts in the field have involved the use of both Cone Penetration Tests and advanced sampling techniques (Gel-Push, Dames & Moore).
