Research Overview

Excavating silt and silty sand from Adapazari, Turkey (2006)

My upcoming research projects involve topics related to the effects of ground motion characteristics on soil and structural response; seismic soil-structure-interaction; soil-structure-underground structure-interaction in dense urban environments; the consequences of liquefaction and mitigation strategies; mechanics of granular materials; interdisciplinary research involving sensing technologies and information technology in earthquake engineering. In my research, I employ centrifuge testing and advanced numerical analyses. The overarching goal is to work toward the resilience of our societies to natural disasters.

If you are interested in collaborating on a research proposal or using the centrifuge facility at CU Boulder in your project, please contact me at and visit our centrifuge website.
