My research interests lie in the areas of structural engineering, resilient infrastructure systems, energy harvesting, advanced sensing systems, data science, and smart cities. The overarching goal of my multidisciplinary research is to develop energy-efficient monitoring systems that integrate energy harvesting, self-powered sensing, machine learning, and statistical methods for infrastructure resilience. I am interested in developing intelligent systems capable of delivering long-term autonomous monitoring data, as well as implementing self-sensing and multifunctional abilities to mitigate the impacts of hazards on the built environments.
