Dr. Ezzeldin has earned his Ph.D. in Civil Engineering from McMaster University in 2016. His research expertise focuses on developing the next generation of system-level performance-based seismic design and assessment code provisions. These provisions adopt a proposed uniform risk philosophy that will minimize the risk of a major disruption to the world social wellbeing due to a disaster.

Ezzeldin introduced an innovative system-level risk assessment and resilience evaluation methodology by introducing the new concept of system-level fragility to provide realistic assessments of the overall building risk under different levels of seismic hazard. This concept is expected to be implemented in new standards based on the current risk quantification methodology.

Currently, Ezzeldin’s research interests focus on computational simulation and analysis of various complex systems using different techniques. Ezzeldin is developing holistic simulation platform to simulate networks-of-networks vulnerability and hyper-risks under extreme events.
