Dr. Ricky Selle graduated in 2000 from Leipzig University after studying civil engineering in combination with business administration while working at the Institut für Massivbau, Prof. Gert König. After being employed at the KHP Leipzig for one year with the focus on concrete and steel constructions, he moved on to the Ohio University and worked on various research projects in the field of concrete pavement for a total of two years.
Back in Germany Dr. Ricky Selle first was the director of an architectural firm in Leipzig, before he then founded his own architectural and engineering company with a partner in 2006, focusing on the renovation of old listed buildings and planning new residential premises in his home town.
Having 4 floors, the residential building located in the Shakespearestraße 30 in Leipzig was the highest timber house in Eastern German (not including Berlin) when it was completed in 2013. It was nominated for the Architectural Award of the City Leipzig. The floors in this building are made of timber-concrete composites – being a technique which Dr. Ricky Selle developed in a certain fashion and which is the subject in his PhD thesis.
Starting in 2011 Dr. Ricky Selle was continuously more involved in projects for Selle Consult, at this time primarily being a firm for geotechnical expert expertise in law suits and approval processes. From the beginning his focus was the structural analysis of pipes and other buried products. In one of his first projects he analyzed the structural integrity of buried GRP-Pipes DN 2600 for the cooling system located in the power plant in Wilhelmshaven. In 2015, he alongside with his father became the co-director of Selle Consult, in 2016 the co-owner.
Since 2010 Dr. Ricky Selle is giving lectures about timber-concrete composites in the master program at the Leipzig University of Applied Sciences. From 2014 to 2016 he lectured at Leipzig University within the bachelor program for the planning of technical infrastructure.
