Research interests

My expertise is probabilistic analysis and optimisation. Applications have dealt with civil engineering systems (e.g. structural systems and transportation networks), hazard risks (e.g. earthquakes), sensor data (e.g. weigh-in-motion data and structural health monitoring) and disaster inequality. By leveraging versatility of probability theory, I intend to expand applications to solve global challenges.

My research interests are two-fold: (1) discovering use of information/data and (2) facilitating interdisciplinary research/communication using probabilistic models. Examples of the first topic are (i) utilising sensor data for automatic decision systems of (infra)structures, (ii) performing reliability-based optimisation for expensive computational models (e.g. finite element analysis), (iii) formulating decision problems for engineering systems to cope with climate change and (iv) realising monetary gains from information. For the second topic, I envision to go beyond Engineering by integrating all disciplines including Social Sciences, Economics, Finance and Politics.
