M.Z. Naser, PhD, PE

I am a tenure-track assistant professor at the Glenn Civil Engineering department at Clemson University and a member of the AI Research Institute for Science and Engineering (AIRISE). Before joining CU, I was a Post-doctoral Research Fellow at the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering in Michigan State University (under the guidance of Prof. Venkatesh K. Kodur who is also my PhD mentor). My research interests cover the areas of Autonomous/Cognitive and resilient infrastructure, Computational intelligenceStructural fire engineering, Retrofitting of aging structures, and understanding the overall Behavior of materials & structures in extreme environments (i.e. fire & space). I am currently serving as a committee member in four ACI committees (133, 216, 440 and 447) as well as ASCE Fire Protection Committee and PCI fire committee. My goal is to achieve a well-recognized academic career. I'm actively looking for challenging research ideas and collaborators, please feel free to contact me to explore possible research opportunities.
