Hi! my name is Miguel Bravo-Haro, and here you can find information about my research work, projects and ideas.
I am originally from Coyhaique, a tiny town in the fathomless Chilean Patagonia. I got my diploma in civil engineering, as well as my MSc in Earthquake Engineering degree, from the University of Chile. Afterwards, I spent some time in the industry - SyS -, where I had the opportunity to participate in several unique research-oriented projects. I just completed my PhD studies at Imperial College London, under the supervision of the Professor Ahmed Elghazouli. I investigated the effects of deterioration phenomena on the seismic response of moment resisting frames, through the use of nonlinear numerical models. Further, I shed some light on the influence of some ground motion characteristics, such as earthquake duration, a topic of particular relevance in subduction regions. I stayed at Imperial College London as a Research Associate for a year, extending the work of my PhD and exploring new research paths, such as hardware and software development for the smart sensing of buildings. I am currently a Postdoctoral Research Associate in the Centre for Smart Infrastructure and Construction at the University of Cambridge. I'm passionate by coding, visualising and building stuff, and statistics aficionado.
