Degree Program: Doctor of Philosophy in Civil Engineering
Academic Focus: Loading on structures by non-stationary wind

Research Interests

In the assessment of wind loading on structures, the wind is often assumed to be stationary. However, the types of wind that induce extreme loading on structures, such as tornados and thunderstorm winds, are inherently non-stationary. The goal of my research is to develop methodologies that can be used to conditionally simulate non-stationary wind fields based on recorded wind events and, on this basis, assess the loading on structures based on these non-stationary wind fields.
