GENERAL BIO

Jamie E. Padgett is an Associate Professor in the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering at Rice University in Houston, TX. Padgett’s research focuses on the application of probabilistic methods for risk assessment of structural infrastructure, including the subsequent quantification of resilience and sustainability. Her work emphasizes infrastructure portfolios such as regional portfolios of bridges or oil storage tanks exposed to multiple hazards, including earthquakes, hurricanes, or aging and deterioration. She has published over 175 articles in journals or archived conference proceedings in the general area of structural response, reliability and life-cycle assessment. Dr. Padgett was the founding Chair of the ASCE technical committee on Multiple Hazard Mitigation, and is an active member of several national technical committees within ASCE and TRB. She currently serves on editorial boards for the ASCE Journal of Bridge Engineering, ASCE Journal of Structural Engineering, Sustainable and Resilient Infrastructure, and Earthquakes and Structures. Dr. Padgett has received several awards and recognitions including the 2011 National Science Foundation Faculty Early Career Development (CAREER) Award and the 2016 IALCCE Junior Award “For contributions to life-cycle analysis of structures”. She has also received recognition for her mentoring and teaching such as the 2014 Rice University Scholar Athlete Favorite Professor Award. Among other projects, Dr. Padgett currently works as a part of several large national or regional research efforts including the NIST Center of Excellence for Community Disaster Resilience (headquartered at Colorado State University), the NSF NHERI Cyberinfrastructure “DesignSafe-CI” (headquartered at University of Texas, Austin), and the Severe Storm Prediction Education and Evacuation from Disasters (SSPEED) Center (headquartered at Rice University).
