Welcome to my personal research website! I am Dr John Gales, an assistant professor researching Fire Safety Engineering and Structural Fire Resilience at York University as of January 2018. I will remain a visiting professor at Carleton University, Canada.

This website’s purpose is to make my research and related interests readily available to the public. The website has specific focus on fire safety engineering. My teaching interests and associated files will be posted soon!
