Padgett Research Group

Dr. Padgett’s research focuses on the application of probabilistic methods for risk assessment of infrastructure, including the subsequent quantification of resilience and sustainability. Her work emphasizes structural portfolios such as regional portfolios of bridges or oil storage tanks exposed to multiple hazards, including earthquakes, hurricanes, or aging and deterioration.

Jamie E. Padgett is a 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 infrastructure, including the subsequent quantification of resilience and sustainability. Her work emphasizes structural 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 200 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/SEI technical committee on Multiple Hazard Mitigation, and is an active member of several national technical committees within ASCE and TRB.
