Dr. Yanlin Guo

Assistant Professor, Civil and Environmental Engineering

DYanlin Guor. Yanlin Guo is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering at Colorado State University (CSU). Her research expertise lies in the areas of real-time structural health monitoring (SHM), system identification and diagnosis, signal processing, structural dynamics and vibration, big data interpretation, remote sensing, as well as data-driven simulation and modeling of extreme winds. These research topics embrace the advances in monitoring, dynamics, modeling, hazard engineering and data science to help evaluate the health conditions of bridges, buildings and other infrastructure, provide quick decision-making support regarding operating, maintenance or retrofitting, etc., and ultimately improve the life-long performance and resilience of structures subjected to both in-service loadings and multiple hazards. Dr. Guo completed her undergraduate studies in Civil Engineering at the Southeast University in Nanjing, China in 2007 and obtained her Master of Philosophy degree in Civil Engineering from the Hong Kong Polytechnic University in 2010. Later she received her Ph.D. degree in Civil Engineering from the University of Notre Dame in 2015. Prior joining CSU, Dr. Guo worked as a Postdoctoral Research Associate at the University of Notre Dame.
