Biography: Olivia Mirza is a lecturer in School of Computing Engineering and Mathematics. She is also Academic Course Advisor for Postgraduate Fire Safety Engineering and Building Surveying Program. Dr Mirza's PhD research is mostly concentrated on the behaviour and design of shear connectors on composite steel and concrete structures. The issues emphasised in her research are looking at the effects of steel fibres as a strengthening system in composite steel-concrete beams, the effects of elevated temperatures on the behaviour of headed stud shear connectors for composite steel-concrete beams, the long term effects on the behaviour of the composite steel-concrete beams, the effects of strain regimes on the behaviour of the composite steel-concrete beams, the effects of the combination of axial tension and shear loading on the behaviour of composite steel-concrete beams. Furthermore, Olivia is also interested in looking at the flush end plate for beam-column connection using blind bolt under both static and seismic loading. She is also interested in looking at the use of innovative anchors for the achievement of composite action for rehabilitating existing and deployment in deconstructible and sustainability of composite steel-concrete structures. In order to advance her research and contribute to engineering community, Olivia also working closely with industry partners (AJAX Fastener, One Steel, Bluescope and VSL prestressed) and government department (RMS formerly known as RTA and RailCorp).
