Bio:

Dr. Dorian Tung obtained his Ph.D. (2017) in Structural and Earthquake Engineering from the University of British Columbia, Canada. He received his Bachelor of Science in Civil Engineering (2000) and Master of Science in Engineering (2002) from Queen’s University, Canada. Dr. Tung has been practicing structural engineering since 2002. He has designed a variety of building types and structural systems. He is a licensed professional engineer in the States of Florida and Texas, USA, as well as a licensed LEED AP BD+C by the US Green Building Council.

The recent earthquakes worldwide have raised the public awareness of resilience. Structures not only have to withstand the sudden ground excitation without collapse, but also need the resilience to recover quickly from damages. This motivates Dr. Tung’s research when he returned to school in 2011. He has been working towards establishing a framework for researchers to develop earthquake resilient structures, for engineers to implement such structures, and for the general public to understand the true performance of the built environment.
