I am currently a Postdoctoral Research Associate at the Department of Civil & Environmental Engineering & Earth Sciences, University of Notre Dame working with Dr. Tracy Kijewski-Correa in Structural Extreme Events Reconnaissance (StEER) program. Previously, I was a postdoc at the School of Civil Engineering & Construction Engineering, Oregon State University (OSU). I obtained my Ph.D. in Civil Engineering with an emphasis in Structural Engineering and a minor in Statistics from OSU in 2019, where I was advised by Dr. Andre R. Barbosa on a dissertation titled "Probabilistic Multi-hazard Earthquake-Tsunami Structural Risk Assessment Framework."
My research focus is strongly rooted in enhancing built environment disaster resilience at individual infrastructure scale as well as community scale to multiple hazards (earthquake, tsunami, hurricane wave and surge) through numerical modeling and experimental testing. To achieve research objectives, I have used a variety of tools such as physics-based high fidelity finite element models (FEMs), uncertainty quantification methods, advanced statistical method, and performance-based design and assessment guidelines. My Ph.D. work and collaborative analytical and experimental research was funded through the NIST Center for Risk-based Community Resilience Planning and products have been incorporated in the the community resilience modeling platform IN-CORE.
I received a B.Sc. in Civil Engineering (Structural) from Bangladesh University of Engineering & Technology (BUET) and M.Sc. in Earthquake Engineering & Engineering Seismology from Rose School, University of Pavia, Italy and Joseph Fourier University, Grenoble, France. I grew up in Bangladesh.
