Troy Morgan, Ph.D., P.E., principal engineer at Exponent and Ezra Jampole, Ph.D., P.E., senior engineer at Exponent, and Christine Z. Beyzaei, Ph.D., P.E., senior engineer at Exponent, have recently been selected as lecturers for the 2019-2020 Earthquake Engineering Research Institute's Friedman Family Visiting Professionals Program. As part of the program, selected professionals are matched with universities to give lectures on current topics related to earthquake engineering and earthquake risk-reduction.
Dr. Troy Morgan, P.E., will lecture on risk-based seismic design and assessment of safety-critical nuclear structures, applications of advanced seismic protective systems, seismic performance of modular building systems, and techniques and applications of forensic structural engineering to earthquake damage assessments.
Dr. Beyzaei will lecture on liquefaction case histories from Christchurch, New Zealand, post-earthquake reconnaissance and practical implications from recent events such as the 2018 Anchorage earthquake and translating geotechnical earthquake engineering from the classroom to consulting.
