I am a Postdoctoral Research Associate at the Department of Civil & Environmental Engineering & Earth Sciences, University of Notre Dame. My research focuses on performance-based design and assessment of infrastructures at individual scale as well as community scale subjected to extreme natural hazards such as earthquake, tsunami, and hurricane wave and surge.

An updated CV is available for download here: January, 2022


Following is a list of my research expertise and interests:

  1. Multi-hazard  reliability and risk-based resilience assessment of coastal communities.

  2. Performance-based earthquake/tsunami engineering.

  3. Development and testing of structural systems under tsunami and hurricane wave and surge loading.

  4. Development, calibration, verification and validation (V&V) of infrastructure fragility and vulnerability models.

  5. Development of GIS-based tools for lifeline damage and recovery modeling.

  6. High-performance and high-throughput computing.
