  • Senior Lecturer
  • Dept of Civil, Environ &Geomatic Eng
  • Faculty of Engineering Science
UCL Principal Supervisor,UCL Subsidiary Supervisor

Dr. Susana Lopez-Querol joined UCL on 2015 as senior lecturer in Geotechnical Engineering. Her academic career started at the University of Castilla – La Mancha, where she played different roles as researcher and academic during fourteen years. After that, she was appointed as senior lecturer at University of West London in 2014.

Dr. Lopez-Querol completed her MEng in Civil Engineering at the Technical University of Madrid, and her PhD in Geotechnical Engineering at the University of Castilla - La Mancha, in 2006. She has been postdoctoral researcher at Imperial College London and CETA (CEDEX - Spain), funded by the Spanish Ministry of Education. Her research interests are mainly on the Geotechnical Earthquake Engineering field. She is currently interested in the constitutive behaviour of sandy material under cyclic loading, from both experimental and numerical points of view, as well as on the effect of dynamic loadings on the foundation of offshore structures and ground improvement techniques.
