Shah Family Fund Distinguished Lecture

The Shah Family

The Shah Family Fund was established in 1995 to provide annual fellowships for students in civil engineering; an annual prize for an outstanding staff member in the School of Engineering; and an annual distinguished lecture on catastrophic risk management and related subjects.

The fund is named for Haresh Shah, professor emeritus and former chair of the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering. Shah, an expert on probability and reliability theory, is a founding member of Risk Management Solutions Inc. in Newark, Calif.
