Ting Lin

Ting Lin directs the Multi-Hazard Sustainability Research Group (HazSus) with parallel tracks in Earthquake Engineering and Climate Change. Interfacing engineering with earth science facilitated by high performance computing and artificial intelligence, her research focuses on earthquake and sea-level rise hazards, risk and uncertainty. Her recent projects include ground motion simulation validation of tall buildings and probabilistic sea-level rise hazard analysis. Passionate about improving infrastructure resilience against multiple hazards, she is thrilled to offer Performance-Based Engineering as an advanced graduate course promoting a culture of innovation and entrepreneurship. Lin has served on delegation/working group/committees under COP15, NEHRP, SCEC, NIST, ASCE, & NASEM, and as a reviewer for journals, conferences, & funding agencies. Her work has been implemented in hazard mapping, modeling software, and building codes & guidelines. Lin completed her B.S. (Hons.) in Civil Engineering and a concentration in Architecture from Cornell, and M.S. and Ph.D. in Structural Engineering from Stanford.
