Dr. Christiana A. Filippou has an educational background in civil and structural engineering, in the field of assessment and retrofitting of existing structures. She studied for a PhD degree at the Cyprus University of Technology in the Department of Civil Engineering and Geomatics and received in June 2021. The main subject of her doctorate thesis is the seismic retrofitting of masonry-infilled RC frames using innovating composite materials such as Textile-Reinforced mortar (TRM). During her PhD studies, several aspects were examined, and several journal articles were published under journals with high impact factors (please refer to my CV for the full publication list). Furthermore, her research contribution also expands to reviewing activities for high impact journals (bulletin of earthquake engineering and structures journal). From the end of May 2022 until today she is a Postdoctoral Research Fellow in the project entitled “ISTOS” (Centre for natural hazard management). Currently She is a Postdoctoral Research Fellow at Eratosthenes Centre of Excellence in the Resilient Department. She academic experience does not rely only on the research aspect but also on my work experience as a module coordinator (from September 2021) at the Cyprus university of Technology and as a visiting lecturer (current position from September 2022) in Neapolis University. Recently, she received Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions (MSCA) Postdoctoral Fellowships with title “Innovative precast panels for Integrated SEismic and Energy upgrading of existing buildings envelopes”.
