Lisa Tobber is an assistant professor in civil engineering at the University of British Columbia’s Okanagan campus. She received her BASc and PhD from the University of British Columbia.
Dr. Tobber develops innovative structural systems for tall buildings that facilitate a low-damage response following large seismic events. Using advanced numerical simulations and large-scale experimental testing, she develops resilient, sustainable, and smart cities.
As a champion for making engineering more accessible to women and Indigenous peoples, Dr. Tobber is committed to the principles of Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion to ensure an inclusive and safe environment for teaching, learning and research.
