Aurélie recently graduated from UCL in 2014 as an engineer architect. She is now working on the issue of structural robustness (the property of systems that enables them to survive unforeseen or unusual circumstances) through case studies. The aim is to explore the application of a geometric approach to assess the relevant elements of structural robustness in terms of design, and to compare them with the deterministic criteria found in literature. The purpose of this work is to lead to the definition of a PhD subject with the aim of characterising the levels of robustness of structures and buildings using interactive graphic indicators, continuing Corentin’s research. Aurélie also worked as a trainee at the Delvaux engineering and architectural office in Louvain-la-Neuve during the first year of her masters degree.
