The UCLA Civil and Environmental Engineering Department is excited to welcome our newest faculty member, Professor Sriram Narasimhan!

Narasimhan’s research expertise spans the areas of structural dynamics, system identification, and condition assessment of structural and mechanical systems. His recent work involves the development and use of autonomous robots and artificial intelligence (AI) to gain a better understanding of the state of infrastructure. He has authored more than 100 journal and conference papers, and serves as an associate editor for both the ASCE Journal of Structural Engineering and the ASCE Journal of Bridge Engineering.

Narasimhan will join UCLA Samueli in March 2021, following nearly 15 years at the University of Waterloo in Ontario, Canada, where he has most recently been a professor of civil and environmental engineering, with a cross appointment in mechanical and mechatronics engineering. He also holds the prestigious position of Canada Research Chair in Smart Infrastructure. Narasimhan is a recipient of the 2018 ASCE Associate Editor award and received his Ph.D. in civil engineering from Rice University.
