  • 6 September 2019: Congratulations to Earthquake Engineering with Disaster Management MSc students Alexandros Tsantoulis and Matthias Fuentes for having received the 2019 EPICentre Best Poster Award (1st and 2nd place respectively) for their final MSc Research Projects. Alexandros worked on ‘A Framework for Seismic Resilience Assessment of RC Building Portfolios’, supervised by Dr Carmine Galasso and Dr Fabio Freddi; Matthias worked on ‘Impact of Directivity-Induced Pulse-Like Ground Motions on Building-portfolio Seismic Loss’, supervised by Dr Carmine Galasso and Dr Roberto Gentile. Students were evaluated on different criteria (visual appeal, contents, presentation and Q&A) by a panel composed by Dr Alexandra Tsioulou (Willis Tower Watson, UK), Mr Paolo Perugini (ARUP, UK), and Dr Karim Tarbali (Politecnico di Milano, Italy).
     

  • 6 September 2019: Congratulations to David Wilkie for passing his final PhD viva today with very minor corrections. David's PhD dissertation is titled ‘Advancing probabilistic risk assessment of offshore wind turbines on monopiles’. The examiners were Dr Susana Lopez-Querol, UCL, and Dr Raffaele De Risi, University of Bristol. David will now stay in our team as a Postdoctoral Research Fellow through a very prestigious EPSRC Doctoral Prize Fellowship.
