Koliou, Maria individual record
Assistant Professor - Term Appoint

My research interests span the fields of structural dynamics and earthquake engineering, and multi-hazard performance-based design for system functionality and community resilience. Through these areas, my research focuses on developing sustainable structural systems and hazard-resistant communities accounting for economic and social aspects. Ultimate goal is to contribute to the well-being of communities by developing novel resilient structural designs and systems against various natural and man-made hazards, and formulating fundamental mathematical frameworks to assess system functionality and community resilience under multiple hazards.
