Pursuing PhD in Structural and Earthquake Engineering

“I wanted to pursue structural and earthquake engineering. The lab here in this area is showcased and it’s a hallmark.”
Ramla Qureshi, Pursuing PhD in Structural and Earthquake Engineering

Ramla Qureshi, a Fulbright Scholar and PhD student in structural and earthquake engineering, is currently working on her thesis under the advisement of Professor Michel Bruneau. Qureshi's research is examining the effect of strong motion shaking on steel plate shear walls.

"I’m very lucky to be here, especially because I wanted to pursue structural and earthquake engineering and not just structures. The lab here in this area is showcased and it’s a hallmark. The faculty here are gurus in this field and it humbles me."

Qureshi is the founder of Women Engineers in Pakistan, a non-profit organization that aims to encourage female participation in engineering and bridge the STEM gender gap in Pakistan and beyond.
