Dr. A.A. (Anjali) Mehrotra
Dr Anjali Mehrotra is an Assistant Professor in the section of Applied Mechanics within the department 3MD. She obtained her BSE in Civil and Environmental Engineering from Princeton University in 2013, and her PhD from the University of Cambridge in 2019. Prior to joining the TU Delft, she was a Postdoctoral Researcher in a joint collaboration between ETH Zurich and UC Berkeley, and a Postdoctoral Fellow at the University of Minho.
Anjali’s research interests include earthquake engineering, structural dynamics, masonry structural collapse, and the development of integrated, computationally-efficient analytical and numerical modelling tools.
Broadly speaking, her research aims to enhance the efficiency of complex numerical models, while also improving the accuracy of simplified analytical tools. More specifically, she works on the development of efficient computational methodologies for the seismic and stability analysis of large-scale structures and infrastructure, as well as robust integrated modelling tools for the rapid assessment of heritage structures at an urban scale.
