Name: Dimitrios Konstantinidis
Discipline: Civil and environmental engineering
Degrees: B.S., M.S., Ph.D., UC Berkeley, 1999, 2001, 2008
Research interests: My research combines experimental testing and mathematical modeling to better understand, quantify and improve the earthquake performance of buildings. I am interested in the dynamic behavior of nonstructural components, the interaction of nonstructural and structural systems and how all this affects the overall seismic resilience of buildings.
Other interests: Traveling, woodworking, cooking
