Dr. Brenkus received her PhD in Civil Engineering from the University of Florida. Her recent work has focused on alternative corrosion protection systems to improve bridge performance and lengthen structure life, including a project to facilitate easier tendon maintenance and replacement using wax products in post-tensioned structures. This work has influenced Florida’s bridge design and construction practices.

Research interests:

  • Prestressed and post-tensioned concrete design and long-term performance 
  • Structural durability and behavior
  • Computational modeling
