Fae Azhari received her BSc and MASc degrees in Civil engineering from Isfahan University of Technology and the University of British Columbia, respectively. After working in the industry for a few years, she returned to school and completed her MEng degree in Industrial Engineering and Operations Research at the University of California, Berkeley, and her PhD in Structural Engineering and Mechanics at the University of California, Davis. Fae is interested in structural health monitoring (SHM) and prognosis of engineering systems. Her main areas of research are twofold: (I) sensor development and assessing the performance of novel sensing devices, and (II) developing decision-making frameworks that use probabilistic models to translate collected data into meaningful information and efficient remedial strategies for various infrastructure systems.
