Earthquake Hazards and Risks

Research Interests

  • Probabilistic seismic hazard and risk analysis

  • Strong ground motion prediction

  • Performance-based earthquake engineering (including nonlinear dynamic analysis of structures)

  • Lifecycle cost analysis of a building (including the effects of decision maker's risk attitudes)

  • Effectiveness of seismic risk mitigation techniques (tuned mass dampers and seismic isolation)

  • Seismic loss estimation of spatially distributed structures

  • Seismic risk management and decision-making (including earthquake insurance portfolio management)

  • Tsunami hazard and risk assessment
