Marco Baiguera

Lecturer in Structural Engineering at the University of Southampton

I am a Lecturer in Structural Engineering at the University of Southampton. Before joining Southampton in February 2021, I was a Research Fellow at UCL EPICentre. The main focus of my research is the development of new engineering tools for estimating the impact of natural hazards on the built environment. My work aims to generate methods and solutions for the design of buildings that are resilient to natural hazards, including earthquakes, tsunami and storm surges. A particular emphasis is dedicated to community critical structures in developed and developing countries, e.g. analytical tools for design of buildings to tsunami loading and tsunami risk assessment of education & healthcare facilities through field survey activities.
