Irwanda Laory is an Assistant Professor at the School of Engineering at the University of Warwick.
His research interests lie in the monitoring of city infrastructure using an array of sensors to ensure that it is resilient and adaptable to changes such as natural disasters and climate change. The research focuses in particular on civil infrastructure (e.g. bridges, buildings and tunnels), developing methods to detect damage, evaluate performance and define the extent of ageing and the remaining design life of infrastructure.
Irwanda is published in the field of Structural Health Monitoring and his work has received a best paper award from the European Group for Intelligent Computing in Engineering (EG-ICE). His work involves full-scale bridges in UK, Switzerland and Indonesia.
He is co-founder of UK-Indonesia researcher network, leading the initiative to establish long-term UK-Indonesia collaboration in Structural Health Monitoring.
