EERI YMC Webinar: The Big Picture and the Missing Link of Earthquake Resilience

When:  January 24th, 10AM-11AM PST
Speaker: Sissy Nikolaou, PhD, PE, D.GE, F.ASCE

In case you missed this webinar, you can watch it on EERI’s youtube channel, or on this page, below!

In this inaugural YMC webinar, Sissy Nikolaou of WSP will present on the rising influence of resilience in all aspects of the built environment. Specifically, she will discuss the human and life quality factor, as an integral component and currently “missing link” in the path to resilience. Furthermore, this webinar will focus on big-picture challenges in earthquake resilience, including novel technologies for earthquake risk evaluation, use of those technologies to improve asset utilization, and integration of life-long, real-time monitoring to re-assess predictions after minor events.
