Professor Tiziana Rossetto FREng
Professor in Earthquake Engineering, University College London
Professor Tiziana Rossetto is a structural engineer who has achieved global recognition through seminal contributions to the characterisation of building performance under natural hazards. This characterisation has emerged from a novel and multidisciplinary approach to natural hazard mitigation. Through EPICentre, which she founded, she has made this approach the industry standard, delivered new methods for experimental tsunami simulation, influenced earthquake and tsunami building codes at a global scale, and changed the insurance industry attitude towards risk modelling. She has advised governments on building regulation and influenced research strategies in engineering resilience at an international level and with transformational impact.
