Associate professor

Associate professor in Structural Engineering since January 2016.

Was responcible for the undergraduate eduquation at the Department of Civil, Environmental and Natural resources engineering 2011-2014. Earlier the same task at Department of Civil, Mining and Environmental Engineering since it was founded in 2004 and before that the same responsibility at the Department of Civil Engineering since 2000.
