The earthquake engineering simulation group, led by Prof. Swaminathan Krishnan, conducts analytical research in the areas of earthquake engineering, structural dynamics, seismology, and computational mechanics, using high-performance computing. We are striving to unify computational seismology and earthquake engineering in the form of rupture-to-rafters simulations for robust earthquake damage prediction, preparation, mitigation, and disaster response.
Swaminathan Krishnan is a Visiting Associate and a former Assistant Professor of Structural Engineering and Geophysics at Caltech (currently on a Fulbright Academic and Professional Excellence Award to India).
