Infrastructure systems are a vital part of our daily lives. While our nation's infrastructure systems are rapidly aging, the amount of resources available for maintaining our infrastructure systems has been shrinking over the past decade. To preserve the quality of our lives and the general well-being of our communities, my research team is focused on the science and engineering of infrastructure systems and smart cities in terms of resilience, robustness, interdependencies, and funding mechanisms, taking advantage of sophisticated modeling techniques and advanced information technologies. I appreciate your visiting my website and encourage you to explore my research. Should you have any questions or desire to learn more about my research program, please do not hesitate to contact me.

 

Sincerely,

Dr. Zhanmin Zhang
