About Maurice Guerrieri

Senior Research Fellow Dr Maurice Guerrieri is the leader of the Structural Fire Engineering Research conducted within the Institute for Sustainable Industries and Liveable Cities (ISILC).

Dr Guerrieri’s currently funded research projects include structural fire resistance tests of concrete structures, geopolymer concretes and the performance of construction materials in bushfire prone areas. Maurice is also in charge of carrying out large scale structural fire engineering tests for the Melbourne Metro Tunnel and Westgate Tunnel Projects.

Maurice is currently in the process of obtaining Full NATA Signatory for Australian and European Fire Test Standards.
