On undergraduate and postgraduate courses, Dr Ivana Kraincanic teaches structural analysis and design, CAD, BIM, computing, finite element analysis, dynamic analysis and earthquake engineering. She will also start teaching Revit Structure on the new BIM module on BSc Civil engineering course. As a course director BSc Civil Engineering, Ivana is responsible for students as well as for developing new modules and modifying existing ones.

Her research covers diverse topics of steel cables, offshore flexible pipelines, reinforced concrete slabs, steel fibre reinforced concrete, and earthquake engineering. She supervised three PhD students to a successful completion, and currently supervises three doctoral study students. Ivana has done extensive testing of suspended and ground slabs, and an undergraduate student who did his project on experimental study of concrete slabs came second in the international Young Structural Engineer of the Year competition.

Dr Kraincanic has done training on Eurocode standards for civil engineering, Ansys and Strand7 finite element software, as well as Revit Structure.

Her employment in former Yugoslavia consisted of working for two years in Trudbenik as a graduate engineer and site engineer. She has also been working at London South Bank University since 1996 as a lecturer and now as a senior lecturer.

She graduated in 1989 from the Faculty of Civil Engineering at Belgrade University, Serbia (former Yugoslavia). Ivana was in a Structures group and did the final year project on the testing of structures using the moire photo-elastic method. In 1996 she completed the PhD study on steel ropes at London South Bank University.

Ivana teaches structures, FE analysis, BIM software, dynamics of structures and earthquake engineering.

Ivana is researching composite steel-concrete structures, fibre-reinforced concrete, vibration in structures and BIM.
