Title: Towards Regional Risk Forecast under Hurricane Event to Support Real-time Emergency Response Decisions

Personal Profile:

Dr. Naiyu Wang is an associate professor in the College of Civil Engineering and Architecture at the Zhejiang University (ZJU), Hangzhou, China. She earned her Ph.D. degree in Civil Engineering, with an emphasis in Structural Engineering, from Georgia Institute of Technology, in Atlanta, Georgia, USA in 2010. She worked as a senior structural engineer (2011-2013) at Simpson, Gumpertz & Heger, Inc. (SGH) in Boston, MA, USA. Before joining the faculty at ZJU she was an assistant professor (2013-2019) at the School of Civil Engineering and Environmental Science at the University of Oklahoma, OK, USA, during which she was actively involved in NIST-funded Center for Excellence on Community Resilience Planning.

Dr. Wang's research interests include risk-based community resilience planning; risk-informed decision support to design and maintenance of resilient and sustainable civil infrastructure systems; analysis and mitigation of competing hazards and risks to infrastructure systems; performance-based design, renewal and rehabilitation; and structural safety and reliability assessment of complex infrastructure facilities. Her current research is focused on risk forecast aimed at providing real-time decision support toward resilient emergency response and risk management, emphasizing a system approach, probabilistic methods as well as perspectives on real-word practice.

Dr. Wang served as a voting member and secretary of the ASCE Standard 7 Minimum Design Loads for Buildings and Other Structures, Subcommittee on Strength Design (Load Combinations) 2011-2018, and served as a voting member of the ASCE Standard 7 Subcommittee on General Structural Requirements 2017-2018. Dr. Wang served as a member of the SEI-ASCE Technical Council on Life-Cycle Performance, Safety, Reliability and Risk of Structural Systems, Task Group 3 Risk Assessment of Structural Infrastructure Facilities and Risk-Based Decision Making 2011-2018. Dr. Wang serves as the Reginal Editor of Disaster Prevention and Resilience, Associate Editor of Journal of Infrastructure Intelligence and Resilience, and serves on the editorial Board of Sustainable and Resilience Infrastructure.
