I am Qiling Zou, a postdoctoral research associate in the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering at Carnegie Mellon University. Prior to joining MAC, I obtained my Ph.D. in Structural Engineering from Colorado State University in 2020. My Ph.D. study focuses on infrastructure resilience and human mobility under hazards. I earned my M.S. in Civil Engineering from Hunan University in 2016. My M.S. work centers on the dynamic interaction between vehicle and bridge. Before that, I received my B.S. in Civil Engineering from Hunan University in 2013.
