About

Josif Josifovski is Associate Professor in Geotechnical Engineering at University Ss. Cyril and Methodius, Faculty of Civil Engineering-Skopje specialising in Numerical modelling in Geotechnics. He studied Civil Engineering at University Ss. Cyril and Methodius (MKD), Computational Engineering at Ruhr University Bochum (DE), did his PhD at University Ss. Cyril and Methodius in frame of South-East Europe Formation (SEEFORM) for PhD Studies in the field of Numerical modelling of Dynamic Soil-Structure Interaction in 2010. Now He teaches foundation design, ground investigation and ground improvement to undergraduate and Numerical modelling in Geotechnics to post graduate students. Also important to mention is his experience in modelling of slope stability problems and retaining structures. Josifovski has published more than 80 project reports and around 20 articles and papers. He has participated in FP6 Programme on Earthquake Protection of Historical Buildings by Reversible Mixed Technologies (PROHITECH) as a member of WP-7 Experimental analysis, 2004-2007. From 2012 He is a member of CEN TC 250/SC7/EG7-Evolution Group 7 on Pile design (European Committee for Standardization). Regarding the geo-environmental and climate change aspect He has participated on two EU TEMPUS Projects for Development of Environmental and Resources Engineering Learning (DEREL, 2010-2013) and Development of Environmental and Resources Engineering Curriculum (DEREC, 2005-2008). His current research interest is coupled thermo-hydro-mechanical analysis and unsaturated behaviour of soils.
