Ph.D., Concordia University, 2011
Structural and Environmental Wind Engineering
Ioannis Zisis joined the FIU Civil and Environmental Engineering Department in 2012 as Assistant Professor and member of the IHRC Laboratory for Wind Engineering Research and Wall of Wind research group.
Dr. Zisis has been studying wind effects on the built environment for the past 8 years. His research focus is structural and environmental wind engineering. He has been using advanced experimental methods, including wind tunnel and full-scale monitoring techniques, to examine how residential and other structures react to extreme wind events. The outcomes of his research efforts are aiming at the development and improvement of national and international wind standards and building codes of practice.
Dr. Zisis has over 30 publications in international journals and conference proceedings and he is a member of the Structural Wind Engineering Committee (SWEC) and Environmental Wind Engineering Committee (EWEC) of the Technical Council on Wind Engineering and the American Society of Civil Engineers (TCWE-ASCE).
Dr. Zisis obtained his M.A.Sc. and Ph.D. in Building Engineering from Concordia University (Canada). He also holds a Dipl.-Ing in Civil Engineering from Aristotle University of Thessaloniki (Greece).
