Project Description

Dr. Heo is an assistant professor in the Department of Civil Engineering at Case Western Reserve University. She received her Ph.D. in civil and environmental engineering from the University of California, Davis. She has expertise in modeling and simulation of probabilistic risk-based system-level performance for complex structures subjected to dynamic loads. Dr. Heo worked at the Offshore Technology R&D Center of Samsung Heavy Industries, where she examined diverse multi-hazard problems for offshore oil and gas process systems exposed to severe weather and operation conditions. She holds three patents for offshore structural systems and was the recipient of the 2012 American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) Norman Medal. Dr. Heois research focuses on minimizing risks in on- and offshore oil and gas systems. As an engineer, she uses a variety of tools, including modeling and simulations, to investigate multi-hazard risks for the complex energy infrastructure systems that are subject to constantly changing stresses.
