I joined the Department of Construction Management and Engineering (CME), Faculty of Engineering Technology (ET) in September 2019 as an assistant professor (tenure track). My position is in a program on the resilient engineering (RE) of the Four Technical Universities (4TU.RE) of the Netherlands. This program (Designing Systems for Informed Resilience Engineering (DeSIRE)) has opened 16 tenure track positions. My research role aims to provide monitoring solutions for our civil infrastructure advancing their resilience.
My previous research has predominantly focused on structural health monitoring (SHM) of bridges. One of the tasks of SHM is to use sensing technologies to collect useful information about the performance of man-made (e.g. dykes, bridges, buildings) and natural (e.g. rivers, coastal dunes) components of the infrastructure. The challenge is not only collecting data/information but ‘making sense’ of it. I seek for resilient monitoring solutions, systems that are enhanced with an artificial intelligence and can recover from shocks, to provide meaningful interpretation of the performance of our civil infrastructure.
