Dr. Hussam N. Mahmoud
George T. Abell Professor in Infrastructure and Director, Structural Laboratory
The Socio-Physical and Hazard-Integrated Environment (SoPHIE) Research Group
Dr. Mahmoud's research program is centered around Sustainable and Resilient Infrastructure and Communities with focus on three major thrusts including:
1) Quantifying community resilience with focus on recovery of social institutions and critical infrastructure following extreme events.
2) Assessing building damage and developing new structural systems subjected to extreme single and multiple hazards.
3) Evaluating, Inspecting, and Managing deteriorated infrastructure within the context of life-cycle analysis.
In our research we embrace multi-disciplinary approaches to account for socio-economic drivers for damage and recovery for different hazards including earthquakes, wildfires, hurricanes, tornados, sea level rise, and flood event.
