Tom Logan

I'm currently seeking faculty or research positions in the intersection of urban planning, civil systems engineering, and computational risk analysis.

I study risk and resilience of urban systems. My research is focused on transforming how we design and realize our cities in the face of climate change. I integrate my New Zealand-taught engineering approach to problem solving with risk analysis, modeling, and statistics to adapt our cities.

My research is an the intersection of:

  • Urban and civil systems
  • Risk analysis and uncertainty
  • Resilience and adaptation to a changing climate.
