Marie Sklodowska-Curie Fellow, Faculty of Engineering



Dr Jelena Ninić is a Marie Skłodowska-Curie Fellow on the "SATBIM" project at the Centre for Structural Engineering and Informatics (CSEI) . Dr Ninić studied structural engineering at the Faculty for Civil Engineering, University of Belgrade (Serbia) from 2003 to 2008. Afterwards, she worked at the same faculty as a teaching assistant at the Chair for Geotechnical Engineering. From 2010, she was as a research associate at the Institute for Structural Mechanics at Ruhr University Bochum in Germany, where she obtained her PhD degree in 2015 with the thesis on "Computational strategies for predictions of the soil-structure interaction during mechanized tunnelling". In 2012, she was a visiting researcher at the Faculty of Civil and Environmental Engineering, Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), USA.

Dr Ninic is also a member of the Centre for Structural Engineering & Informatics Research Group.

Expertise Summary

Dr Ninić's main research is in the areas of numerical modelling, the simulation of complex engineering problems, and numerical steering of processes, with a special focus on mechanized tunnelling and soil-structure interaction problems. Her expertise includes development of numerical models using the open-source finite element framework "KRATOS", numerical simulations of construction processes, meta models and optimization algorithms, steering, sensitivity analysis, as well as massive-parallel computation and data analysis.
