University of Waterloo
Daniel Lacroix is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering at the University of Waterloo. He holds a BASc, MASc, and PhD from the University of Ottawa, in Ottawa, Canada. Dr. Lacroix is primarily interested in studying the behaviour of mid- and high-rise wood structures subjected to extreme loading (e.g. earthquake, blast, impact).
Dr. Lacroix’s expertise is in the structural and dynamic performance of wood systems under blast and impact loading, strengthening and retrofitting of wood structural elements using fibre reinforced polymers (FRP), and modelling of wood members under high strain rates. His research interests also include the structural performance of lateral load resisting systems in mass timber buildings, modern and innovative timber connections, resilient design of structures, and evaluation of timber members and engineered wood products at low and high strain rates.
