Adam Zsarnóczay is a Research Engineer at the John A. Blume Earthquake Engineering Center at Stanford University, where his work focuses on disaster simulations that support multi-hazard risk assessment and management at a regional scale. As Associate Director for Research Outreach at the NHERI SimCenter, he connects to researchers and practitioners to monitor the state of the art and foster collaboration in the natural hazards engineering community. Adam obtained his Ph.D. in civil engineering at the Budapest University of Technology and Economics and also completed a graduate program at the University of Tokyo. He has experience working at scales that range from an individual structural member through a building up to cities with hundreds of thousands of assets. His research interests include probabilistic natural hazard assessment, model development and calibration for structural response estimation and performance assessment, surrogate modeling and uncertainty quantification in large-scale, regional simulations, and using quantitative disaster simulations to support risk management and mitigation.
