Dr. Xiao Liang joined the department in 2018 after receiving his PhD in Civil Engineering in 2016 at University of California, Berkeley. His research focuses on health monitoring of infrastructure systems and buildings taking advantage of data analytics and machine learning to enable assessing and quantifying the condition of structures in near-real time under service and extreme events.
He is particularly interested in algorithmic developments for health monitoring of critical transportation infrastructures that are aging and usually beyond the initial design periods of use. His interests also include performance-based methodologies for hazard resilience, nonlinear structural dynamics and earthquake engineering.
