Dr. Jazalyn Dukes is a Research Structural Engineer in the Earthquake Engineering Group at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST). Dukes is also a member of the National Construction Safety Team for the Technical Investigation of Hurricane Maria’s Impacts on Puerto Rico. Her research interests include probabilistic analysis methods, finite element modeling, seismic retrofit of structures using fiber reinforced composites, and multi-hazard reconnaissance studies.
Prior to joining NIST, Dukes was a Structural Engineer at the Naval Surface Warfare Center, Carderock Division (NSWCCD). Her work at NSWCCD involved structural component modeling and analysis, material fracture and fatigue testing, and digital image correlation applications. Dukes earned her B.S. in civil engineering from University of Maryland, College Park, and M.S. and Ph.D. in civil engineering from Georgia Institute of Technology, where her research topic focused on fragility analysis of bridges in California.
She is currently a member of EERI, ASCE, and ACI. Dukes is an associate member of ACI 440 committee on Fiber-Reinforced Polymer Reinforcement and ACI 133 committee on Disaster Reconnaissance. She is a licensed professional engineer in Virginia.
