My research interests lie in structural engineering, fluid-structure interaction modeling, multi-hazard analysis, risk assessment, and resilience modeling. I have conducted several research projects, including developing computational frameworks to better understand the impact of multi-hazard events on residential/commercial buildings, life safety risks, and economic resilience metrics in terms of direct and indirect economic losses for coastal communities. The outcome of his research results in effective mitigation strategies, safer design for structures, and ultimately, enhancement of the community‚Äôs resilience to natural hazards, which is aligned with the Coastal Institute’s goals.
