Aman Karamlou

Mr. Aman Karamlou is a P.C. Rossin Doctoral Assistant and Ph.D. Candidate in the Doctoral Program in Structural Engineering at Lehigh University. He is also affiliated with the ATLSS Engineering Research Center.

I received my Master degree in Structural Engineering from AmirKabir University of Technology where I conducted extensive experimental and numerical studies on reinforced concrete shear walls. I joined Dr. Bocchini's research group in June 2012. Since then I am working as a research assistant in the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering at Lehigh University, as well as ATLSS Engineering Research Center. My research is about disaster resilience of bridges and transportation networks.
