Assistant Professor, Civil, Environmental, and Geo- Engineering
Lauren Linderman's research is focused on cyber-physical systems to improve the long-term performance of structures or limit their response during transient events, such as earthquakes. Her primary areas of interest include vibration mitigation strategies, decentralized control, wireless sensor systems, and data acquisition techniques. Current efforts focus on leveraging the computational and sensing capabilities of wireless sensor systems for decentralized control of civil infrastructure. These wireless smart sensors can be extended to multitasking networks that both control response and monitor structural health.
Linderman received a B.S. in civil engineering from Washington University and a Ph.D. and M.S. in civil engineering from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.
