Areas of Expertise

Challenges in Modern Civil Infrastructure and Natural Hazard Assessment and Mitigation

Kijewski-Correa’s research addresses 21st century civil infrastructure challenges. The multidisciplinary collaborations she has developed are supported by advanced sensing technologies, innovative analysis frameworks and cyber-infrastructure. These efforts include structural health monitoring programs for signature buildings around the globe and multiple projects that leverage cyber-infrastructure to help mitigate structural damage caused by natural hazards and to create new paradigms for open-sourcing the design of civil infrastructure. Her work also focuses on the unique infrastructure challenges facing the developing world with her current efforts directed toward sustainable reconstruction of urban housing in Haiti following the 2010 earthquake.
