Expertise

Dr Helder Sousa is an expert with more than 15 years of practice on Structural Health Monitoring (SHM), clearly demonstrated by several top- ranked international journal publications. In a recent past, he has been a Teaching Fellow and an Individual Marie Skłodowska-Curie Fellow at the Department of Civil & Environmental Engineering at the University of Surrey, where he acted as the Module Convenor on the modules of Bridge Loading Analysis and Prestressed Concrete Bridge Design. Acting as an Independent Consultant in SHM applied on Civil Engineering structures – HS Consultancy – he is currently leading one of the biggest monitoring projects in the world applied to long-span bridges.     In parallel, he has been engaging with worldwide experts in the field of SHM, as the leader of the Innovation Committee of the COST Action TU1402 – Quantifying the Value of SHM, aiming to facilitate sustainable societal developments in the design and assets management for structures and infrastructure systems by optimised SHM systems.
