The doctoral student at the ASAP Project, Suzana Ereiz, receieved additional eductaion and training at the  Escuela Técnica Superior de Ingeniería (Universidad de Sevilla) with doc. Javier Fernando Jiménez-Alonso.

Suzana receieved additional education in modeling brigde structures and creating numerical models, connecting the software interface for numerical modeling with software and numerical computer platforms, and finally developing optimization algorithm based on game theory based to create a more efficient algorithm to improve numerical model. The stay resulted in the establishment of a new algorithm for optimizing the model updating procedure, which also contributed to the application of the doctoral dissertation topic.

Thus, on February 22, 2022 Suzana defendedn the topic of doctoral disertation entitled “Finite element model updating of bridges using alogithm based on game theory”.
