Mohammadamin Hariri Ardebili (Assoc)

PREP Researcher

Dr. M. Amin Hariri-Ardebili is a PREP Researcher at NIST. He is also an affiliated Research Associate with University of Maryland College Park, and University of Colorado Boulder. His main research interests are performance-based earthquake assessment of infrastructures, risk and resilience, alkali-silica reaction, uncertainty quantification, and applied machine learning. 

Prior to joining NIST, Hariri was research associate at the University of Colorado Boulder for over 5 years, where he worked on a wide range of structural engineering problems related to the aging and shaking of critical infrastructures: nuclear power plants (funded by the Oak Ridge National Laboratory, and Nuclear Regulatory Commission), and concrete dams (funded by US Bureau of Reclamation). He also was lecturer for several courses such as “Earthquake engineering”, “Advanced Mechanics of Materials”, and “Structural Analysis” (and received Marinus Smith Award twice). 

He is currently serving as a Chair for the US Society of Dams (USSD) subcommittee on “Academic and Research Collaboration”. For the past three years he was heavily involved in multiple projects related to multi-hazard probabilistic assessment of structures, sensitivity analysis, uncertainty quantification using the hybrid machine learning methods. He received the Best Paper Award at the 19th IEEE International Conference on Machine Learning and Applications (ICMLA), Dec 2020.
