Research interests:

Structural health monitoring, damage detection, intelligent infrastructure, data interpretation methods, measurement system design and computer-aided engineering.


Irwanda Laory graduated from Bandung Institute of Technology, Indonesia, with a BSc in Civil Engineering and then went on to Bauhaus Universiteit Weimar, Germany, where he undertook a master program (Natural Hazard and Mitigation in Structural Engineering) and obtained his MSc in civil engineering. This was followed by his PhD at Swiss Federal Institute of Technology Lausanne (EPFL), Switzerland. His doctoral study focused on methodologies for data interpretation during continuous monitoring of structures. He is a member of several professional associations such as International Society for Structural Health Monitoring of Intelligent Infrastructure (ISHMII), European Group for Intelligent Computing in Engineering (EG-ICE) and American Society of Civil Engineering (ASCE).

PhD Supervision:
