About this event

TEDxDelftSalon is powered by TU Delft Studium Generale.

The Salons will take place at TU Delft campus, monthly recurring events (starting in February) and are small: one talk, one live speaker and a discussion afterwards. All this in lunchtime (lunch will be provided). All talks are in English.

Confirmed Speakers

  • Eva Lantsoght
    My name is Eva Lantsoght and I'm a PhD candidate at TU Delft in the Concrete Structures Section. The topic of my research is shear in reinforced concrete slabs under concentrated loads close to the support. The results of my series of large-scale experiments will be used by the Dutch Ministry of Transport, Public Works and Watermanagement to evaluate the existing slab bridges in the Netherlands. I now live in Delft,the Netherlands, but I was born and raised in Lier, Belgium. I completed my engineering degree in civil engineering at the Vrije Universiteit Brussel with a thesis on buckling of reinforced concrete columns. Then, I went to Georgia Tech for a MS in structural engineering with a Fulbright scholarship and Belgian American Educational Foundation scholarship and did some additional research on punching shear in reinforced concrete slabs. Besides reinforced concrete, I am interested in and blog about: the process of doing a PhD, the non-scientific skills you need during your PhD, living abroad and my travels.
