research overview

My upcoming research projects including the following:

  • Fire-performance of steel-frame buildings
  • Post-earthquake fire performance of industrial facilities
  • Seismic retrofit strategies for reinforced concrete frames with masonry infill
  • Fire-performance of mass timber and cross-laminated timber buildings
  • Including fire hazards in life cycle assessments of building
  • Environmental impacts of fires
  • Quantification of public participation in emergency management
  • Seismic resilience of water infrastructure networks (tanks and pipelines)

The goal of all of this research is to improve the resilience and sustainability of communities in natural and man-made disasters.
