Personal profile

Research Focus

Dr Myra Lydon is Royal Academy of Engineering Research Fellow, she was awarded her PhD in Civil Engineering in 2016 from QUB whilst working on an £1.2M international research project with Centers of Excellence in the USA and Ireland. Her research led the development of the world’s first fiber optic bridge weigh in motion system, the sensor system is attached to the underside of a bridge and can provide accurate classification and weight information on the traffic as it passes over the bridge.  Her current research SMART Infrastructure aims to enhance the resilience of road networks through data analytics and greater interoperability across asset management systems, focusing specifically on the vulnerability of bridge structures within the network. She is currently working with the Northern Ireland Department for Infrastructure to develop a digital road map of Northern Ireland road network and a new data-based bridge management system
