Didier Vernay is Module Coordinator at the Cyber Civil Infrastructure research project at Future Cities Laboratory at the Singapore-ETH Centre. He was a doctoral researcher at the Future Cities Laboratory in the Simulation Platform research module, enrolled at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Lausanne, Switzerland (EPFL). He obtained his PhD in 2015. During his PhD, he developed a probability-based framework that uses measurements to improve simulation predictions of wind around buildings at unmeasured locations. He obtained his Master of Science (2011) in civil Engineering at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Lausanne, Switzerland (EPFL). He specialised in Structural Engineering and his Master thesis focused on the understanding of the behaviour of energy piles.
Didier Vernay is currently working on structural health monitoring. His research interests include sensors for identification of parametric structural and environmental models, uncertainty analysis, machine learning, smart cities, environmental sustainability, etc.
