senior geotechnical engineer,
Lenia is a chartered civil engineer and a registered ground engineering professional. She holds an MSc from Imperial College London in Soil Mechanics and Engineering Seismology (2014). She is currently a senior geotechnical engineer at AKT II, London, working on a number of high-profile projects in the UK and overseas. Lenia has experience in a range of ground engineering problems including soil mechanics, rock mechanics, earthquake engineering and numerical modelling. This experience ranges from large-scale infrastructure projects to major urban regeneration projects worldwide. The last few years she has mainly focused on leading the geotechnical design for major developments within dense urban environments. This would typically include deep basements, advanced soil-structure interaction analyses, complex foundation schemes and challenging interfaces with sensitive infrastructure assets.
