Dr Finian McCann is a Senior Lecturer in the Division of Civil and Building Services Engineering of the School of the Built Environment and Architecture, specialising primarily in structural engineering.

His research interests include steel structures, nonlinear mechanics, fire safety, structural behaviour in fire conditions, composite steel-concrete structures, metallic foam sandwich panels, glass fibre-reinforced polymers and modular construction techniques.

In investigating these topics he combines analytical theory and numerical modelling methods with experimentation, all conducted at LSBU.

He also conducts and oversees structural component qualification testing for external clients, along with knowledge development projects for industrial collaborators.

Finian lectures modules covering structural analysis, structural design and engineering mathematics at both undergraduate and postgraduate levels.
