Dr. Arvin Ebrahimkhanlou is a Postdoctoral Fellow in the Department of Civil, Architectural, and Environmental Engineering at The University of Texas at Austin, where he also earned his Ph.D. degree. Arvin’s research in the area of Structural engineering focuses on Nondestructive Evaluation (NDE) and Structural Health Monitoring (SHM) of civil, mechanical, and aerospace structures. Arvin is highly specialized in wave propagation, machine learning, data analysis, signal processing, uncertainty quantification, and computer vision. His Ph.D. investigates the patterns of acoustic wave propagation in structures and leverages them to diagnose and characterize structural defects. In particular, Arvin has developed reliable monitoring systems for airplanes, prestressed bridges, containment structures, concrete buildings, and pipelines. The results of Arvin’s research has published in more than 18 highly cited journal papers and 22 conference articles. In addition, he has filed one provisional patent application. His scholarly efforts have had a quantifiable impact on the field and been cited more than 400 times so far. Such efforts have also been recognized by several prestigious awards, including the Fellowship Award of the American Society for Nondestructive Testing (ASNT). Arvin has served more than 130 times as a reviewer for several top-tier journals and has been a conference session chair and program organizer to multiple conferences. Arvin is a distinguished alumnus of Sharif University for obtaining his Bachelor’s degree with the highest honors and an active member of several professional societies, including ASNT, SPIE, EERI, ASCE, ASME, IEEE, ACI, AISC, and PCI.
