Research Interests:

My area of research is on “Analysis, Design, Testing and Health Monitoring of Structures” toward “predictive maintenance and digital twins” to achieve more “resilient, sustainable” and “smart infrastructure.” My research interests include:

  1. Structural Health Monitoring and Prognosis of Structures
    • Predictive maintenance, machine learning, digital twins
    • Structural health monitoring of bridges, scour monitoring, fiber optic sensors
    • Integration of embedded sensing in computational plasticity
    • Post-earthquake structural health monitoring of bridges
  2. Resilience Assessment
    • Resilience and risk assessment of bridges and buildings subjected to hurricane induced surge, wave, wind and scour
  3. Simulation/Testing
    • Hybrid simulation, seismic testing of structures
    • Nonlinear finite element analysis of reinforced concrete and steel structures
    • Fracture mechanics, computational Plasticity
