Katerina Genikomsou 

Assistant Professor, Department of Civil Engineering Design vs. Nature: Building Infrastructure to Withstand Environmental Disasters  Dr. Katerina Genikomsou is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Civil Engineering. She is a member of the American Concrete Institute, the American Society of Civil Engineers, la Fédération international du béton, and the International Association for Bridge and Structural Engineering. Her research on the maintenance of built infrastructure and the development of new sustainable materials and processes has global and local implications in potentially improving the lifespan of structures, particularly during environmental disasters. In this episode, Dr. Genikomsou discusses her research on shear failure and its role in the collapse of buildings during environmental disasters, such as which occurred in Ottawa in September 2018. She also advocates for civil engineers to play a role in the construction of networks of resiliency in design provisions. This would assist engineers in considering such aspects as the effects of climate change and the needs of community members. https://civil.queensu.ca/Research/Structural/Katerina-Genikomsou/
