Dr. Mihail Iancovici is a Structural Engineer who comes from the academic and research field. Dr. Iancovici currently is a lecturer at the Department of Structural Mechanics at the Technical University of Civil Engineering of Bucharest (UTCB). He received both his Masters and PhD from UTCB in the field of Structural Dynamics and Earthquake Engineering.

Dr. Iancovici has an advanced research background and experience in the analysis and design of buildings in regards to earthquakes and wind effects. His research covers topics from the input ground motion and wind tunnel test data processing, to structural analysis, structural control and reliability analysis.

He studied and conducted research in the field of Seismology and Earthquake Engineering in Japan at the Building Research Institute (BRI)/International Institute of Seismology and Earthquake Engineering (IISEE) on the seismic performance of RC structures.

During his tenure at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), USA, he worked on wind effects on high-rise buildings, and contributed to the development of a database-assisted analysis and design framework of high-rise buildings.

Dr. Iancovici was involved in the Romania-Japan joint project in the field of earthquake engineering and seismic risk management, as an expert at the National Center for Seismic Risk Reduction (NCSRR).

In recent years, Dr. Iancovici focused on developing a time-domain approach for database-assisted seismic analysis and design of tall buildings.
