Umberto Alibrandi has been employed as associate professor with our department from 15 November 2018 in Civil and Architectural Engineering.

Umberto Alibrandi graduated as PhD in Civil and Environmental Engineering, at the University of Messina, 2006, defending the thesis Computational Methods in Structural Reliability and Stochastic Mechanics. He was postdoctoral researcher at the University of Messina from 2006 to 2008, University of California at Berkeley from September 2008 to May 2009, National University of Singapore from 2013 to 2015, Nanyang Technological University from 2015 to 2017, Berkeley Education Alliance for Research in Singapore from 2017 to 2018. From 2010 to 2012 he worked as a Structural Engineer in in Italy. He applies methods of Performance Based Engineering, Structural Reliability and Risk Analysis, Computational Stochastic Mechanics, Risk informed Decision Support for structures, Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence for academia and industry for more than 15 years. He has been involved in research projects focused on risk analysis of offshore systems, risk management of resilient transportation networks, sustainable and resilient design of smart buildings/infrastructures. Within these areas he has lectured classes since 2003, and he has published over 60 papers in high-ranking scientific journals and international conference proceedings. His current research interests focus on socio-technical holistic design under uncertainty for the sustainable development of the urban communities.

Umberto will be working at Navitas.

Welcome

Min Wu is a new assistant professor from 15 October 2018 in Civil and Architectural Engineering. Dr. Min Wu received his PhD degree from the Technical University of Denmark (DTU) in 2014 and worked as a postdoc researcher at École Nationale Supérieure des Mines de Paris (MINES ParisTech) in 2014. He has also worked in the industry for seven years, approx. three years as a development scientist for BASF Construction Chemicals Asia Pacific and four years as a durability specialist for COWI A/S.

His main research interests lie in construction materials including microstructure and properties of cement based materials, durability design and service life modelling of reinforced concrete structures, novel and sustainable construction materials, recycling and waste utilisation, self-healing and self-repairing materials, construction chemicals, etc. The research aims to improve our understanding of the most commonly used construction materials, i.e. cement based materials, and to create more synergy between the two major aspects of construction materials, i.e. sustainability of durability.

Min Wu will be working at Navitas.
