Laser Scanning and its growing applications in structural engineering: from 3D modelling to automated BIM generation of large structures
Belén Riveiro, University of Vigo, Spain
Belén Riveiro is an Associate Professor of Structural Engineering at the University of Vigo (Spain) since 2012. She holds a MSc in Construction Engineering (2015), MSc in Forestry Engineering (2006) and a PhD in Environmental Engineering (2011). She has been an Associate Professor in Geomatics at Newcastle University (UK) in 2011-12, and was a postdoctoral visiting research fellow at the University of Minho (2012 and 2014), the University of Cambridge (2015) and at Delft University of Technology (2016).
Her research is focused on the application of remote sensing technologies in structural engineering for the automated modelling, inspection and material characterization using inverse analysis procedures. She has been principal Investigator in several research and innovation projects (at national and international level) and coordinator of an European action on the resilience of transport infrastructure to extreme events (within the H2020 Framework Program). She has published more than 80 research papers in SCI-JCR journals. She is co-author of 9 patents and has supervised 7 PhD thesis.
She is Associate Editor of Remote Sensing (MDPI), and Secretary of the ISPRS WGII/10 3D Mapping for Environmental & Infrastructure Monitoring for the period 2016-2022.
