Dr Celia Kueh

Postdoctoral Fellow

Centre for Public Health Research

My research interests are in modelling the mechanics of structures. My PhD research undertaken at the University of Waikato, was on buckling and post-buckling of corrugated paperboard structures. In my current role as Postdoctoral Researcher at Massey University, I am developing models to optimise the design of corrugated fibreboard packaging.
