Current Research Activities
My research is focused on the application of statistical and probabilistic models for the assessment of the risks and reliability of a submerged floating tunnel (SFT) aimed to be constructed at the Qiongzhou Strait in China. However, the methodologies presented in my research can be applied to any civil structure.
