Alex Brodsky is a Lyon Sachs Postdoctoral Fellowship at the University of Toronto, Canada.
He obtained his B.Sc. (Summa Cum Laude) and Ph.D. (direct track) in Structural Engineering from Technion – Israel Institute of Technology. In his Ph.D. he investigated the behavior of masonry infilled frame-structures to reduce the likelihood of Progressive collapse.
His research focuses on the behavior of structures under extreme loads. Alex has extensive experience in large scale-experimental tests and failure investigations of structures. In his current research, Alex deals with multi-scale simulations, ductile failures in reinforced concrete beams and analysis of long-span prestressed concrete bridges.
In his free time he enjoys traveling with his family and friends, engaging in various sports and reading about economics.
