An engineer with many years’ experience in structural surveying, designing and strengthening buildings affected by earthquakes, Lusa’s main role with Prendos is to undertake Initial and Detailed Seismic Assessments and provide detailed analyses and designs for the seismic and structural strengthening of buildings.

Lusa began her career as a structural engineer and senior lecturer in Romania, before immigrating to New Zealand and taking up a one year role as researcher and tutor at the University of Auckland’s Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering. This was followed by a consecutive 16 year period as lecturer, senior lecturer and researcher at UNITEC’s Department of Civil Engineering, where she taught the Bachelor of Engineering Technology course covering fundamental structural design principles in relation to concrete, timber and steel structures.

Throughout her career, Lusa’s penchant for knowledge has sustained an active interest in research. She is a member of many professional engineering organisations, co-author of two books and has an extensive list of research contracts and publications, mainly in the field of seismic behaviour and response patterns and structural characteristics of concrete.

Lusa sees teaching and guiding students to become responsible civil engineers as her most satisfying venture.
