The broad objective of my research is to minimize human and economic losses incurred during earthquakes by enhancing the seismic safety of our built environment. My research seeks to advance the state-of-the-art in structural risk and reliability assessment using modern high-performance computing tools and statistically rigorous structural analysis techniques. I employ large-scale numerical simulations to answer fundamental questions relating the characteristics of earthquake ground motion to the nonlinear dynamic response and collapse behavior of structures.
