Project Description

Dr. Mostafavi is an assistant professor in the Zachry Department of Civil Engineering at Texas A&M University. He received his Ph.D. in civil engineering at Purdue University. He also holds a Master of Science in industrial administration from the Krannert School of Management at Purdue University. Dr. Mostafavi supervises the Infrastructure System-of-Systems Research Group. He also works closely with community partners, such as the Southeast Florida Climate Compact, to extend the broader impacts of his research. Dr. Mostafavi takes a “system of systems” approach to studying chronic and acute stressors facing coastal communities all over the world. He bridges the boundaries between complex systems science, network theory, and civil infrastructure systems in a way that he hopes will foster resilient, smart, and connected communities. His work creates complex system models of coastal communities that contribute to actionable science that is necessary for adaptation planning.
