Personal profile

Research profile

Enxhi is currently studying the effect of applied oscillatory forces on altering friction forces for different types of contact configurations, including the effect of micro- and macrostructure and system dynamics. Most of the research activity consists in developing different mathematical and numerical models to quantify the effect of vibration on friction forces, combined with tailored experiments to validate such models, aiming to scale up the technique for industrial applications.

Academic background

Enxhi completed her bachelor’s degree in Civil Engineering at Middle East Technical University. In 2017, she joined TU Delft to pursue her master's studies in Structural Engineering and graduated with a thesis titled “Study of nonlinear dynamic soil response to harmonic excitation using semi-analytical and numerical methods”. She then worked as a structural engineer focusing on assessing the seismic performance and safety of masonry structures. In 2021, she re-joined TU Delft as a PhD candidate.
