Fidelis' research interests are in fatigue and fracture mechanics. He specialises in the fatigue of welded steel connections and has published articles in journals and conference proceedings. Fidelis has worked on research projects that are applicable to the mining, road transport and agricultural industries. Fidelis is a referee of the Journal of Constructional Steel Research (JCSR) and the Thin-Walled Structures journal (TWS). He also regularly reviews papers for several other journals including the Journal of Structural Engineering - ASCE (USE), Journal of Bridge Engineering - ASCE (USA) and the Materials and Structures journal among others.

In 2009 Fidelis graduated from the University of Tasmania with a Graduate Certificate in University Learning and Teaching. He also has interets in research in teaching and learning.
