He received his Ph.D. degree in dynamics of structures from the Kiev National Technical University of Construction, Ukraine, followed by postdoctoral studies in dynamics of building structures at the University of Canterbury, New Zealand. His research interests include analysis and design of structures subject to extreme loads, experimental investigation of structures under impact and blast loads, and the development of high-performance protective structures for critical infrastructure protection against effects of terrorist attacks. Remennikov has been involved in a variety of engineering projects for both governmental organisations and private sector, involving protection of critical facilities against terrorist attacks. He also works on the development of methodology for predicting remaining life of concrete sleepers and has participated in a number of large projects addressing remaining life of sleepers in heavy haul coal lines in Australia.
