Dr. Cristina Zanotti


Cristina Zanotti joined the Civil Engineering Department at UBC as Assistant Professor in July 2016. She earned a PhD degree in “Structural Rehabilitation and Maintenance of Ancient and Modern Buildings” and a MASc degree in Civil Engineering at the University of Brescia in Italy, and enrolled as postdoctoral fellow at UBC in 2013.

Cristina’s research aims at developing constructions and repairs that are durable, sustainable, and compatible with social and physical environment. Her current projects are focused on durable infrastructure repair, prevention of delamination in concrete repairs, alterative cementitious materials, and construction materials/technologies for sustainable communities.
