Dr Michal Drewniok

Job title: 
Research associate

Michal holds a M.Sc.Eng. at the Faculty of Civil Engineering, Silesian University of Technology in Gliwice, Poland.  He joined the Use Less group at the Engineering Department of the University of Cambridge in the end of 2015, where he is involved on two projects, both centred on making better use of steel in construction. The first explores the barriers to steel reuse, an important potential source of carbon and energy savings. The second project looks at the design process in construction and the role of material efficiency in building conception.

Michal's background is in concrete technology. He during his masters he proposed a methodology for designing self-compacting concrete compositions based on mortars properties. He further worked on the technological factors which determine the self-compacting concrete formwork pressure.

In 2014-2015 he worked as a Site Engineer and Precast Concrete Manufacture as Concrete and Production Technologist.
