Marina Konstantatou

4th year student in Engineering

My PhD research focuses on the bidirectional analysis and design of structures through geometry. This approach is fundamentally different to current practise. A real-life application of these geometrical methods is the design of structures, such as exoskeletons of skyscrapers, bridges, and large infrastructure projects, which have purely axial forces rather than bending. This significantly reduces the amount of construction material required for the project. Thus, it contributes to the movement for more sustainable, lightweight, and structurally efficient geometries. My work has been already published in journal papers, conference proceedings, and I am currently co-authoring 3 chapters of a book.
