Alexander Riley Hartloper
Alex joined EPFL in January 2017 after completion of his Masters in Civil Engineering at McGill University in 2016 (Montreal, QC). He also holds a Bachelors in Engineering from McGill University (2014).
At McGill Alex was active as a Teaching Assistant and Instructor for Matrix Structural Analysis, and as a Teaching Assistant for Statics. His main interests lie in the seismic evaluation of structures, and design and analysis of steel structures.
Alex's previous work focused on performance-based seismic assessment of steel moment-resisting frames. Specifically, on updating recommendations for the modelling of structural components in such steel frame buildings.
Alex's current work extends his previous work in the field of seismic assessment. This is done through the development of high-fidelity models that are able to better capture the observed component behavior is steel frame buildings under seismic excitations.
