Ziqi Wang is an assistant professor in the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering. His research focuses on analyzing and understanding the reliability, risk, and resilience of structures and critical infrastructures under hazards. He is interested in computational methods of structural reliability and uncertainty quantification, focusing on interpretable probabilistic analysis methods leveraging domain/problem-specific knowledge. He also develops probabilistic methods to analyze the regional impact of hazards by adapting theories/models from reliability, uncertainty quantification, and statistical physics.
