Civil and Environmental Engineering
Research Areas: Laboratory earthquakes and nanoseismology, wireless sensors networks, snow water hydrology, internet of water, geophysics and wave propagation, geothermal energy, rock mechanics
Sample Projects: Operates the largest wireless network in the world, monitoring forest hydrology of snowmelt and water balance in the Sierra Nevada. The wireless sensor networks research covers a wide range of applications – from the first use of the Berkeley Mote to monitor the seismic safety of wood-frame houses to measuring the seismic response of the Masada mountain in Israel to measuring environmental hazards at Chinese historical sites such as Dunhuang.
