Field of Active Research

Dr. Pezeshk’s research interests encompass all phases of engineering seismology and earthquake engineering; in particular, ground motion prediction, site effects, site characterization, GPR, probabilistic seismic hazard analyses,  and strong ground motions and their impact on structures.

Dr. Pezeshk has also a long record of research in structural optimization, in particular, performance-based structural optimization.

Dr. Pezeshk's research in Ground Motion Prediction Equations (GMPEs) has been implemented in the USGS hazard maps 2008 and 2014:

and U.S. NRC and EPRI:
