Yufen Zhou

Yufen Zhou (Ph.D., civil, 2016) was one of the top 20 early career women interested in academia in Civil and Environmental Engineering who was invited by MIT to participate in the CEE Rising Stars Workshop held on the MIT campus October 12 -13, 2017.  This is the second year of this event.  The goal of the workshop is to bring together the next generation of CEE academic leaders for two days of scientific interactions and career-oriented discussions. It featured research presentations by the participants, faculty talks, panels on issues relevant to academic careers, and opportunities for informal networking with faculty members at MIT.  Yufen’s presentation was entitled “Advancing performance-based multi-hazard engineering:  risk-informed approaches considering combined serviceability and ultimate strength of critical infrastructure.”
