Katrin Beyer is Assistant Professor for Earthquake Engineering at the Ecole Polytechnqiue Fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL) in Switzerland. After her undergraduate studies at the Federal Institute of Technology in Zurich (ETHZ), she worked for two years for the consulting firm ARUP in London, UK, on projects related to structural dynamics, impact and seismic analysis. She received her PhD from the Rose School, Pavia, Italy. Her research interests include large-scale structural tests, the seismic behaviour of non-rectangular RC walls and of unreinforced masonry structures and the torsional response of asymmetric buildings when subjected to seismic excitation.
