Project manager


Jaka Zevnik has finished his studies of civil engineering in 2002 at the University of Ljubljana. He started his career as technologist at Gradis GP and soon became researcher at the Institute for constructions, seismic engineering and computation of the University of Ljubljana, where he involved himself in the studies of seismic vulnerability of reinforced concrete viaducts with boxy pillars and defended his doctoral thesis in 2007.

Within the project VAST-IMAGE he worked on the development of a new device for semi active seismic isolation of viaducts and buildings, based on magnetho-rheological elastomeres.
