There is an opening for highly qualified students to join my group for PhD and PDF.  The particular openings are in: 1) interest and exposure with analytical modelling / experimental tests in mass timber buildings; and 2) physics-based corrosion risk modeling for oil & gas pipelines.

We are committed to equity and diversity and highly encourage applications from Indigenous peoples, visible minorities, women, people with disabilities, people of minority sexual orientations and gender identities, and those who are the first generation of their family to attend postsecondary studies.

Please e-mail with statement of research plan and current CV.

General Background

Dr. Tesfamariam received his Ph.D. from the Department of Civil Engineering at the University of Ottawa. His doctoral research work is on developing a risk-based seismic screening criteria using fuzzy based techniques. He joined the School of Engineering at the University of British Columbia (UBC) Okanagan as an assistant professor in January 2008. Prior to joining UBC Okanagan, he has worked for over seven years at the National Research Council Canada on developing different decision support tools for infrastructure management, and analytical and numerical based modelling of pipe failures. Dr. Tesfamariam's current research interest entails: developing a multi hazard risk-based decision support tools for infrastructure management (earthquake, wind, fire, etc.); and risk management of civil infrastructure using smart structures (piezoelectric actuators, shape memory alloys, etc.).
