Emilio Bastidas-Arteaga is Associated Professor at University of Nantes since 2010 where he is affiliated to the Institute for Research in Civil and Mechanical Engineering (GeM). His research work aims at providing robust stochastic frameworks to optimise design, inspection and maintenance of ageing coastal and offshore structural structures. Since 2009, he has been working on the assessment of consequences and adaptation of infrastructure and buildings subjected to climate change within the framework of national/international collaborations and research projects.
He is co-author of more than 100 technical papers and reports. Among these publications, he recently co-edited a book on Climate Adaptation Engineering. He has been and is also participating in several technical committees related to climate change and civil engineering: French Association for Normalisation (AFNOR, France), American Concrete Institute (ACI, USA), Joint Research Centre (JRC, Europe), and the International Association for Bridge and Structural Engineering (IABSE, International).
