Marco Baiguera is a Research Fellow at UCL EPICentre. The main focus of his research is the development of new engineering tools for estimating the impact of tsunami on the built environment in coastal areas. His work aims to generate methods that integrate the design and assessment of buildings for tsunami and sequential earthquake-tsunami loadings, with emphasis on critical structures in developed and developing countries, e.g. analytical tools for design of buildings to tsunami loading and tsunami risk assessment of education healthcare facilities through field survey activities.
