Dr Bertrand Teodosio is a postdoctoral researcher at the Institute of Sustainable Industries and Liveable Cities (ISILC). 

Bertrand has a significant experience in developing novel, data-driven research projects related to geotechnical, environmental, and structural engineering. Bertrand also collaborated with various companies (e.g. the Australian Reinforcing Company) and academic institutions (e.g. Tokyo Institute of Technology, De La Salle University, Pusan National University, and the University of Alberta) to conduct inventive research projects. Before joining Victoria University, he worked as a data analyst/scientist at Envirosuite where he implemented artificial intelligence (AI) to develop innovative products.
