Amanpreet Singh (IntlAssoc)

PREP Researcher

Dr. Amanpreet Singh is a PREP Researcher at NIST. He is also a Postdoctoral Fellow in the Department of Civil and Systems Engineering at Johns Hopkins University (JHU). He is an earthquake engineering experimentalist whose research focusses on performance evaluation of structural and nonstructural components and systems. Through collaborative efforts between academic and industry partners, his current research looks at assessing and improving functional recovery and building downtime estimates by leveraging large-scale system-level shake table tests on 10-story cold-formed steel (CFS)-framed building to develop improved fragility information.

Prior to joining JHU and NIST, he earned his doctoral degree from University of California San Diego (UCSD) in 2023. His work at UCSD focused on the impact of structural and nonstructural detailing on the seismic behavior of CFS-framed wall-lines through component-level full-scale tests. He also developed a practice-oriented numerical modeling strategy for dynamic structural analysis of CFS-framed buildings. In 2020, he was the recipient of the Best Student Paper Award at the Cold-Formed Steel Research Consortium Colloquium. He also won the Wei-Wen Yu Outstanding Student Paper Award at the International Specialty Conference on Cold-Formed Steel Structures 2018.
