Tom Logan

I'm currently seeking faculty or research positions in the intersection of urban planning, engineering, and computation.

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, computation, and statistics to adapt our cities

My research interests include:

  • Resilience and risk analysis
  • Urban planning and civil systems engineering
  • Climate adaptation
  • Statistics and operations research
  • Modelling of human and natural systems.
