Research of Multi-Hazard Risk Assessment and Mitigation explores risk assessment and risk management of civil infrastructure subjected to natural and man-made hazards. These hazards include earthquakes, floods, wind and blasts. Civil infrastructure includes buildings, bridges, above ground and underground transportation facilities, etc.
- Loss estimation of building portfolios located over an extended geographical area and subjected to multiple seismic events;
- Risk assessment and risk mitigation of flooding in the New York City subway network due to hurricane-induced storm surges;
- Resilience, sustainability, and interdependencies among the transportation, energy, and public health networks subjected to short-term disasters (e.g., flooding, wind, and earthquake) and long-term challenges (e.g., energy shortages, sea level rise, a rise in temperature);
- Probabilistic benefit-cost analysis for earthquake damage mitigation through evaluation of different retrofitting measures for residential buildings in Istanbul, Turkey.
