Welcome Ehsan Nikbakht, Universiti Teknologi Petronas to be TPC!

Ehsan Nikbakht, Universiti Teknologi Petronas (UTP), Malaysia


I am currently lecturer at the Civil engineering department, university Teknologi PETRONAS (UTP) in Malaysia. I received my Master and PhD degrees in structural engineering at national university of Malaysia (UKM). My Master research was thin-walled steel structures and my PhD research was seismic design of precast post-tensioned bridge piers. My teaching and research interests are in the areas of structural and earthquake engineering.

The title of my publications in the last 3 years are as the following:
