Trinity College Dublin

Beatriz Martinez-Pastor is a Ph.D. researcher in the Department ofCivil, Structural and Environmental Engineering at Trinity College Dublin. Her research is focused on the development of mathematical models to measure resilience in transport networks under extreme weather conditions, helping to improve the current traffic networks and designing the new networks more efficient. She holds a Master and a Bachelor Degree in Civil Engineering from the University of Cantabria in Spain (2007-2014).Furthermore, she has participated in several international conferences, workshops and symposiums with the results of 6 conference papers. She is also involved in some international organizations as TRB, being a young member in the standing committee of Critical Infrastructure Protection.


Sensitivity analyses identify the importance of the model parameters and variables, providing a profound knowledge of the model. Most of the sensitivity analysis implies a local evaluation of the variability of the parameters.... [ view full abstract ]
