Lidija Krstevska, Ph.D.,M.Sc, B.Sc, is a full professor in the Institute of Earthquake Engineering and Engineering Seismology - IZIIS, Ss. Cyril and Methodius University in Skopje, Republic of North Macedonia. She is a professor in the subjects Experimental Mechanics and Dynamics of Structures at the international master and doctoral studies at IZIIS. Her main professional activities are related to experimental testing of structures on site as well as testing of scaled models, elements, structural components and equipment in laboratory conditions exposed to different types of dynamic loads, including earthquakes. She has participated, as principal investigator or co-investigator, in numerous international scientific projects: JFP-760/YO-AES-192-USDA; INCO-COPERNICUS EUROQUAKE IC1 5-CT-97-0203 Project, NATO Science For Peace Project - SFP: 983828; FP6 PROHITECH Project, COST Actions C25, C26 and FP1101, Project SERA – Seismology and Earthquake Engineering Research Infrastructure Alliance for Europe, as well as in several bi-lateral projects with Turkey, Slovenia and Croatia. She has participated at numerous national and international conferences, training schools and seminars and has published more than 160 original and scientific papers as author or co-author. She has supervised several master and PhD thesis. Research interest of Prof. Krstevska’s scientific activity includes investigation of seismic behaviour, stability and vulnerability of different types of structures – high-rise buildings, historical buildings and monuments, masonry and wooden structures as well as other systems aimed at their earthquake protection.
Currently, she is a Head of the department: Laboratory for Dynamic Testing and Informatics at IZIIS.
