Alejandro Jiménez Rios
MSCA Postdoctoral Research Fellow

Research Project: Digital Twin Anomaly Detection Decision-Making For Bridge Management

Research Interests: Conservation of existing built heritage through inspection, diagnosis, intervention design and monitoring of buildings and bridges with historical/cultural value; the study of vernacular and sustainable architecture; exploring the mechanical properties and structural behavior of masonry, earthen and bamboo structures through the application of non-destructive testing and advanced numerical simulations; as well as in the development and implementation of new technologies in the architecture, construction and engineering (AEC) industry such as artificial intelligence, internet of things, structural health monitoring and digital twins.
