M. Sc. (Doctoral student) Daniel Tomic
M. Sc. Daniel Tomic (1991) graduated on the Faculty of Civil Engineering (structural division) at the „Ss. Cyril and Methodius” University in Skopje in 2013. In the academic year 2013/2014 he was enrolled in the second cycle – Master studies in Earthquake Engineering and Engineering Seismology (IZIIS). As part of the postgraduate studies, the candidate successfully realized a one-semester exchange at the University of Naples, Federico II (second) in Italy, at the Department of Engineering and Architectural Constructions. He completed his master’s degree in 2018 in the field of earthquake engineering with a narrower field of research: seismic risk analysis of existing and planned buildings, typologies of buildings. M. Sc. Daniel Tomic is an external Professional Associate and Doctoral student at the Institute of Earthquake Engineering and Engineering Seismology (IZIIS) in the Department of Risk, Disaster Management and Strategic Planning at the University „Ss. Cyril and Methodius” in Skopje. His narrow field of research is analyses of seismic hazard, vulnerability and risk, disaster management and emergencies as well as strategic planning in the domain of reduction of disaster risks, a field in which also the doctoral dissertation with the proposed title „Development of a methodology for seismic risk assessment of N. Macedonia on the basis of incomplete datasets” is focused. He has participated in several seminars and workshops: South Eastern European Graduate School for Master and Ph.D. Formation in Engineering (SEEFORM) by German Academic Exchange Service, Skopje, N. Macedonia, (2015); NATO SfP-984374 BSHAP-2 Project: 5th (Final) Project Workshop on the Improvement of the Harmonized Seismic Hazard Maps for the Western Balkan Countries, Skopje, N. Macedonia (2015); Seismic Hazard Maps of Republic of Macedonia, 12th Annual meeting of CEN&CENELEC, CURRENT STATUS OF THE EUROCODES IN THE BALKAN REGION, Skopje, N.

Macedonia, (2016); IZIIS efforts towards Seismic hazard Assessment of Macedonia, Infra-NAT project workshop on „Bridge Exposure Data Collection“,Skopje, N. Macedonia, (2018); Professional meeting, Advanced innovative super-insulating materials for energy efficiency of buildings, Skopje, N. Macedonia, (2019); Professional meeting, The collapse of the POLCEVERA MORANDI bridge in Genoa in 2018, Skopje, N. Macedonia, (2019); Professional meeting, Design and harmony of bridges, Skopje, N. Macedonia, (2019); Eurocodes Balkan Summer School – Seismic Design of concrete buildings, organized by the European Commission’s Joint Research Centre (JRC), (2021). As one of the authors appears in the national annexes, Seismic zoning maps of the Republic of Macedonia for the requirements of MKS EN 1998-1: 2004 – Eurocode 8. He has participated in post-earthquake missions: Central Italy Earthquake (2016); Skopje Earthquake (2016); Ohrid Earthquake (2017), Albania Earthquake (2019). He received a certificate of appreciation for the earthquake in Albania from the Embassy of the Republic of Albania in Skopje. He is an active participant of several internal projects, including the project „Eq-DAT: Upgrade and modernization of the existing IZIIS methodology for damage and loss assessment from earthquakes” (2020). He has published numerous scientific papers at national and international conferences and professional reports. He is a member of the Macedonian Association for Earthquake Engineering (MAEE), as well as the Macedonian Chamber of Certified Architects and Certified Engineers of the Republic of N. Macedonia (KOMORAOAI).
