Ricardo Monteiro, Eng., Ph.D., is Senior Assistant Professor at the University School for Advanced Studies IUSS Pavia, Italy and affiliated researcher at the European Centre for Training and Research in Earthquake Engineering (EUCENTRE) in Pavia, Italy and at the Institute for R&D in Structures and Construction (CONSTRUCT) at the University of Porto, Portugal.

He received his European Ph.D. (2011, Portugal and Italy) degree in civil engineering from the University of Porto after obtaining his 5-year bachelor’s degree in civil engineering also at the University of Porto. After a one-year period as graduate researcher at the Department of Civil Engineering and Architecture at the University of Pavia, he joined IUSS Pavia in 2011.

Since 2013 he serves as the Deputy Director of the former ROSE School, where he is involved in the coordination of MSc and PhD programmes in the field of natural hazard and human-induced risk. His research over the last approximately 15 years has focused mostly on nonlinear methods for the seismic analysis of RC structures and, more recently, in integrated seismic risk assessment and loss estimation.

He is currently coordinating or co-coordinating 5 national and European research projects in Italy and Portugal (total budget over 2M€). His scientific achievements are presented in about 100 publications in peer-reviewed journal and conference proceedings.
