Research interests

Efi Tzoura is a Research Associate working on the EPSRC funded project “Resilient Materials for Life” (RM4L). Her research focuses on the development of self-sensing concrete employing “smart” sensing materials.

She obtained her PhD title at the Department of Civil Engineering of the University of Patras carrying out research related to strengthening of reinforced concrete structures with advanced composite materials (Textile Reinforced Concrete, Fibre Reinforced Polymers) and Structural Health Monitoring (SHM) with piezoelectric transducers.

She has been previously employed at the University of Warwick (June 2015-September 2015) as Research Assistant and the University of Leeds (February 2016 – September 2017) as Research Fellow. Her main research focus was related to damage detection of concrete with piezoelectric sensors and Laser-Induced Breakdown Spectroscopy (LIBS).
