Research – Christine A. Goulet, Ph.D.


  • My research interests are in the field of geotechnical earthquake engineering and engineering seismology in the context of performance-based design. My main focus is on ground motion characterization, probabilistic seismic hazard analysis, site response effects and ground motion selection for nonlinear structural analyses. My research also involves extensive modeling and numerical analyses with finite elements, notably for soil-structure interaction and site effects.
