Yiska Goldfeld is an Associated Professor in the Faculty of Civil and Environmental Engineering at the Technion – Israel Institute of Technology. Her research interests are in the fields of stability of shell structures, textile reinforced concrete structures, structural health monitoring and development of smart self-sensory concrete structures.

Dr. Goldfeld obtained both her B.Sc. degree (1995, summa cum laude) and her Ph.D. (2002, direct Ph.D. track) from the Faculty of Civil and Environmental at the Technion. She also obtained an M.B.A degree (1999) from Ben Gurion University of the Negev and worked for three years (1995-1997) as a structural engineer in one of the largest construction firms in Israel.

During 2002-2004, she was a post-doctoral fellow in the Faculty of Aerospace Engineering at TUDelft, The Netherlands. In 2004 she joined the Technion as a senior faculty member in the Faculty of Civil and Environmental Engineering.
