Increasing recurrence and disruptive forces of extreme climatic events reveal the extent of vulnerability of our built environment and communities. The OASIS lab conducts cutting-edge interdisciplinary research to address the resiliency and sustainability challenges related to our vulnerable sociotechnical systems leveraging advanced algorithm-based data-driven techniques. More specifically, we develop quantitative models to examine systemic/stochastic impacts of various chronic/acute shocks on sociotechnical systems, develop risk-informed decision models, and investigate cost-effective adaptation measures to advance resilience and sustainability of our communities and critical infrastructure systems (e.g., energy, water, health, etc.).
The mission of OASIS lab is to address the wicked problems and the concurrent issues to investigating the resilience and sustainability of the critical infrastructure systems.
Although it is well-established that the human mental health is heavily influenced by their environmental exposures, the link between mental health and environment is still beset with a number of uncertainties.
The United States energy system is growing vulnerable to the adverse impacts of climatic events that characterized by climate patterns shift such as hot and humid summers, etc.
Climate change is affecting the life of people in far-reaching ways across regions, impacting a multitude of infrastructure sectors such as energy, public health, ecosystems, water supply and the communities.
