Welcome to the GeoSystems Lab at UC Davis
Our research focuses on quantifying how geologic setting and infrastructure design interact. This involves numerical models implemented in software that is capable of capturing the multiscale nature of these interactions. We are especially interested in natural hazard modeling and describing how infrastructure responds to this type of loading as an aggregated system. We incorporate the latest advances made in computing technology into open source tools that can be used by the research community as well as practitioners. Additionally, we are working on ways to utilize advances made in remote sensing and UAV technology such that the data acquired from these technologies can be quickly processed and used to update model predictions.
