Professor Anne Kiremidjian in the department of Civil & Enviornmental Engineering has been awarded the Structural Health Monitoring Lifetime Achievement Award at the 11th International Workshop on Structural Health Monitoring on September 13, 2017.
This prestigious award honors an individual in the SHM community who has championed Structural Health Monitoring over their career by advancing the state-of-the-art through their meritorious accomplishments in research, applications, education or sponsorship of the discipline. The SHM Lifetime Achievement Award recipient is selected by a committee of researchers, educators and practicing scientists and engineers and is sponsored by Boeing.
Kiremidjian's current research focuses on the design and implementation of wireless sensor networks for structural damage and health monitoring and the development of robust algorithms for structural damage diagnosis that can be embedded in wireless sensing units. She works on structural component and systems reliability methods; structural damage evaluation models; and regional damage, loss and casualty estimation methods utilizing geographic information and database management systems for portfolios of buildings or spatially distributed lifeline systems assessment with ground motion and structure correlations.
