Indirect sensing, statistical inference, and probabilistic modeling of dynamic structural systems to better understand their behavior and then improve their performance. Realizing that environment around and the users within all have direct physical interaction with the structure, my research will utilize the structure itself as a sensing medium to indirectly sense and infer these information (itself, within, and around). Specifically, my research focuses on 1) itself (structural health monitoring, HVAC operation analysis, etc.), 2) within (tracking and characterization of occupants’ activity, health status, etc.), and 3) around (indirect monitoring of traffic, surrounding infrastructures etc.).STRU
