Two structural engineering PhD candidates, and one environmental engineering PhD candidate earned the top three spots in the Civil Structural and Environmental Engineering’s graduate student poster competition.
Thirteen master’s and PhD students participated in the competition earlier this month, and their research spanned across disciplines within the Department. Students’ research represented areas in concrete, bridges, nanomaterials, atmospheric composition and other specialty areas.
Seyed Omid Sajedi won first prize and $250 for his poster on Risk-informed Seismic Damage Diagnosis Leveraging Deep Learning. The poster describes research between he and his advisor and assistant professor of research, Xiao Liang.
Second place went to Mohammadreza Moghaddaszadeh, who is co-advised by Civil, Structural and Environmental Engineering faculty members, professor Amjad Aref and assistant professor Kamelia Atefi-Monfared, and assistant professor in the Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering, Mostafa Nouh. In addition to his second-place finish, Moghaddaszadeh earn $150.00 for his research on Omnidirectional Wave Mitigation using Elastic Metamaterials in Axisymmetric Arrangements.
Last year’s Departmental winner, PhD candidate in environmental engineering, Arvid Masud, earned third place this year and $100 for his work with assistant professor Nirupam Aich.
Sajedi and Moghaddaszadeh represented the Department in the School of Engineering and Applied Sciences’ poster competition on February 20.
