Cambridge CB2 1PZ
Tina completed her undergraduate Civil Engineering degree (FH Diplom) at the University of Applied Sciences in Mainz in Germany in August 2008.
She continued her academic education at the University of Dundee in Scotland. The Masters of Science in Earthquake and Offshore Geotechnical Engineering was supported by the DAAD (German Academic Exchange Service).
In 2010 Tina became part of the Doctoral Training Centre in Photonics Systems Development, which is a new research centre formed by UCL and the University of Cambridge in collaboration with industrial partners. In this framework she completed an MRes in Photonics.
For her PhD she then specialised on Brillouin optical fibre monitoring in Geotechnical applications. She is mainly involved in the deformation monitoring of circular shafts that are being constructed for major projects in London (Crossrail and Thames Water). Tina is supervised by Prof. Kenichi Soga and Dr. Mohammed Elshafie.
