Dr. Dragomirescu received her B.Sc. from the University of Bucharest, Romania and her M.Eng. from the same university, UNESCO Chair Program. Her Ph.D. was awarded from Yokohama National University, Japan and she started her academic career in 2004 as Research Associate at Yokohama National University, Japan. In 2006 she moved to Nagoya University, Japan, as Research Associate, and in 2008 she joined the Department of Civil Engineering of University of Ottawa. Dr. Dragomirescu was involved in research projects related to wind tunnel investigations and aerodynamic stability of long-span suspension bridges and high rise buildings, CFD simulation techniques for high-intensity winds and structural reliability methods for risk assessment of bridges. In 2008 she was appointed member of the Steering Committee for the Japanese National Wind Engineering Guidelines.She was involved in organizing several national and international conferences and she is affiliated to professional associations such as JAWE, JSCE, CSCE, IAWE, etc. Her present research consists in developing new methods of predicting the fatigue induced by extreme winds on structures, aerodynamic stability of inclined bridge cables, aerodynamic formulations for wind-induced vibrations, evaluation of wind energy systems and probabilistic structural dynamic response of bridges under the effect of vehicular load. Also Dr. Dragomirescu is an active supporter of International Student Exchange Programs and International Research Collaborations.
