Oreta as virtual resource speaker at Bataan Peninsula State University

 The Civil Engineering Department of the Bataan Peninsula State University (BPSU) has been hosting a series of webinars entitled "Bridge to Success" through the initiative of its department head, Gil Cruz (a PhD DLSU student). 

Dr. Andres Winston Oreta was invited as resource speaker for its June 5, 2021 webinar on the topic, "Disaster Risk Reduction and Infrastructure Resilience." Oreta will present the key concepts on DRR and Infrastructure Resilience using the 4 R's of Resilience (Bruneau, MCEER) and he will share his survey on retrofitting strategies in Japan during his AUN/SEED-Net visiting researcher trip in 2015. Seismic retrofitting is one strategy for increasing the resilience of structures to earthquakes.
