At SiRIUS Lab, we investigate the interplay and connection between the multi-disciplinary data, algorithms, computational models, and emerging technologies to improve the performance, monitoring, and resilience of interconnected civil infrastructure and urban systems against deterioration, natural hazards, and climate change. 

Our research interests encompass the following interconnected areas:

  • Multi-hazard risk, reliability and resilience of civil infrastructure and urban systems
  • Structural sensing, data fusion, and health monitoring for cyber-physical systems
  • Technological development, testing, design, and assessment of resilient structures
  • Data science and machine learning applied to natural hazards research
  • Bayesian filtering, identification, and control in structural and dynamical systems
  • Structural dynamics and earthquake engineering

Seeking Motivated Students for Undergraduate and Graduate Research Opportunities

The SiRIUS lab is actively seeking motivated undergraduate and graduate students to join our team and explore exciting research opportunities. We are committed to fostering a diverse and inclusive environment, and we encourage students from all backgrounds and underrepresented groups to apply.

If you are interested, please reach out to Dr. Milad Roohi ( with the subject line "Prospective Student – LAST NAME". In your email, briefly introduce yourself, highlighting your background and research interests. Please attach a single combined file containing your CV, unofficial transcripts, and a short statement describing your relevant research experience.

For graduate students, to learn more about the graduate program in Architectural Engineering (Structural), please visit the Durham School of Architectural Engineering and Construction and our graduate programs websites.

We look forward to hearing from you and discussing the possibilities of working together.
