Dr. Jampole specializes in evaluating the performance of structures subjected to extreme loads such as earthquakes, wind, and flood events and in performance-based analysis and risk assessments. He has served as a consultant on projects assessing the origin of damage and cause of collapse of structures following earthquakes, extreme weather events, adjacent construction incidents, corrosion and deterioration, settlement, and long-term issues.

Dr. Jampole has substantial experience investigating the engineering standard of care for complex energy and infrastructure projects. He is experienced in expert witness investigations for international arbitration and domestic litigation cases. He also has experience designing steel, concrete, and wood framed buildings; and in nonlinear analysis, finite element analysis, applied element analysis, probabilistic hazard analysis, incremental dynamic analysis, and earthquake ground motion selection.

Dr. Jampole has developed multi-hazard risk assessment frameworks to determine the risk of structures and components due to climate change. He has developed engineering-based quantitative risk analysis models of utility components for electric and gas transmission and distribution systems, including evaluating the risk due to contact with foreign objects and failures due to wind and earthquakes. He has evaluated the effectiveness of wildfire mitigations in reducing components failures that may lead to arcing and ignitions.   

Dr. Jampole has developed strategies for improving the performance of light frame structures during severe earthquakes. He developed a sliding isolation system geared towards the properties of light frame structures, and validated its performance through numerical analysis, component testing, and full scale shake table testing of a two-story isolated house. He also developed a ground motion intensity measure for the prediction of sliding isolation demands, and subsequent ground motion prediction equations for use in probabilistic seismic hazard analyses.

Dr. Jampole currently serves as an adjunct associate professor at Columbia University, where he teaches a course on forensic engineering. He is extensively involved in the Earthquake Engineering Research Institute through the Learning from Earthquakes Program. Prior to joining Exponent, Dr. Jampole assisted in teaching courses in the behavior and design of structural systems, earthquake engineering, and performance-based design at Stanford University.
