Professor of Civil Engineering (Newcastle University)
As Professor of Civil Engineering at Newcastle University, Stephanie provides academic, professional and industrial leadership to a large suite of undergraduate and postgraduate programmes. Originally working in geotechnical engineering research, Stephanie's current interests lie primarily in infrastructure resilience. Stephanie pioneered the concept of the Urban Laboratory, an initiative aimed at developing and using full-scale operational infrastructure as a laboratory in which to develop research and impact. This approach is fundamental to the University's development of Science Central.
Stephanie is also PI for UKCRIC Urban Observatories.
