Research Interests

Earthquake engineering with concentration on seismic protective systems (seismic isolation, damping systems, adaptive systems and semi-active systems) and emphasis on behavior, modeling, testing, development of analysis tools, development of design procedues and assessment of performance.

Current and Recent Projects

  • Probabilistic seismic performance assessment of seismically isolated buildings.
  • Development of damping system for open space.
  • Development of three-dimensional seismic isolation system.
  • Development of low-cost seismic isolation system for residential construction.
