A showcase of the findings from two research projects undertaken by the 2019 Grant winners.

Research presented:

Optimal design of rubber joints for seismic protection of masonry-infilled frame structures
Enrico Tubaldi

Integrating earthquake early warnings into organisational resilience
Gianluca Pescaroli and Gemma Cremen

This lecture was brought to you by the UK Earthquake Engineering Field Investigation Team (www.eefit.org.uk) which is serviced by The Institution of Structural Engineers.

Speakers

Dr. Enrico Tubaldi is Senior Lecturer of Structural Engineering in the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering and member of the Center for Intelligent Infrastructure at University of Strathclyde. Before joining University of Strathclyde in October 2017, he was Marie Curie Research Fellow at Imperial College London (UK) and post-doctoral researcher at Polytechnic University of Marche, University of Camerino, Lousiana State University and at the Institute of Risk and Uncertainty of University of Liverpool.

Dr Gianluca Pescaroli is Assistant Professor (Lecturer) in Business Continuity and Organisational Resilience at University College London (UCL). His research investigates how to build and improve the continuity of operations during disruptive events, how to minimise their impacts, and how to increase the resilience of the public and private sectors.

Gemma Cremen is a Lecturer in Risk and Resilience Engineering UCL, who specialises in developing statistical tools to support decision-making related to seismic activity and other natural hazards. She is currently working to quantify, model and communicate disaster risk within the GCRF-funded “Tomorrow’s Cities” hub and is also contributing to the ongoing development of next-generation earthquake early warning systems within the EU-funded “TURNkey” project.
