Welcome

Ting Lin is a Postdoctoral Fellow with Prof. Greg Deierlein in the John A. Blume Earthquake Engineering Center. She obtained her Ph.D. from the Stanford University Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering conducting research on earthquake ground motion selection methodology in Prof. Jack Baker's research group. Passionate about civil engineering, she is interested in improving hazard analysis and sustainable design for infrastructure systems, incorporating elements from other fields into engineering, and integrating research and practice. Her postdoctoral research focuses on seismic performance of tall buildings and performance-based tsunami engineering. She is co-teaching an advanced graduate course, CEE 385 Performance-Based Earthquake Engineering, with Prof. Eduardo Miranda, Prof. Greg Deierlein, and Prof. Jack Baker.

Ting grew up in China, and went to high school in Singapore. She spent her undergraduate years in Hollister Hall, Rand Hall, and many other inspirational places at Cornell University, completing her Bachelor of Science in Civil Engineering with Honors and a concentration in Architecture. Before joining Stanford for graduate study in the Structural Engineering and Geomechanics program, she worked with Prof. Tom O'Rourke, Prof. Harry Stewart, and Dr. Mike Palmer on NSF/NEES lifeline research at Cornell, and Dr. Les Robertson on structural design at Leslie E. Robertson Associates in New York City.

Research Interests: Hazard and risk analysis, interface between engineering and earth sciences, sustainability and resilience
