Using EEFIT observations acquired from the aftermath of Nepal Gorkha earthquake (2015) and subsequent field observations the presenters will evaluate the resilience of the built environment to earthquake induced landslides and how these events impact long term vulnerability to future hazards.
The presentations will also investigate how industry and scientific communities can use tools, such as UNISDR Disaster Resilience Scorecard to evaluate the resilience of communities to hazards and support achieving the aim of the Sendai Framework in disaster risk reduction.
Ziggy is a geotechnical earthquake engineer with over 30 years’ experience working at Arup. He has carried out seismic design, analysis and assessment for a range of structures in the energy, infrastructure, manufacturing and humanitarian sectors. He was recently appointed a Royal Academy of Engineering Visiting Professor in Geotechnical Earthquake Engineering at UCL and is heavily involved in the development of Eurocode 8.
Viviana Novelli works as a Lecturer in Civil Engineering at Cardiff University. She holds a PhD awarded from UCL and a post-doc from the University of Bristol. She is an active member of the Management Committee of EEFIT and work as external consultant for World Bank.
Valentina Putrino is a Research Associate at University College London. Her PhD focused on the development of a framework for the multi-hazard assessment of historic masonry structures. In 2016 she took part in the EEFIT mission to Central Italy. Later, she won the EEFIT 2017 Research Award to continue her research on the cumulative damage to the historic urban fabric of Norcia (Italy).
Dr Sean Wilkinson is a structural engineer specialising in earthquake engineering. His research aims to build up resilience among communities through understanding how critical infrastructure (CI) responds in a disaster and its role in protecting communities.
