Paul Jaquin, Structural Engineer -  UK

"I am a structural engineer based in the UK. I completed a PhD about the fundamental behaviour of earth buildings, and explained how their water content varies and affects mechanical behaviour. I applied this to historic rammed earth buildings, to enable better conservation. I am actively involved in research, being involved in work at UWA and with many other groups around the world. I am an expert member of ICOMOS ISCEAH, a founding director of Earth Building UK, and have published and reviewed widely on the subject of earth buildings. I work for an international engineering consultancy, and have worked on a number of earth building projects. My book, Earth Building: History, Science and Conservation is available from November 2011."
