Mohamed Moustafa is a Visiting Associate Professor in Civil and Urban Engineering at New York University Abu Dhabi. He received his MS and PhD in Civil and Environmental Engineering from UC Berkeley in 2010 an 2014, respectively. He also obtained a Certificate in Engineering and Business for Sustainability from UC Berkeley in 2014. Moustafa has been with the Civil and Environmental Engineering faculty at the University of Nevada, Reno since 2015, and is a registered professional engineer in the state of California.
Different research thrusts collectively provide the pillars of Moustafa’s research vision for a Future Generation of Resilient Infrastructure Design, or Future-GRID, technology hub. The emerging technology thrusts build on about 15 years of experience in the general area of structural engineering and specific areas of mechanics and design of reinforced concrete structures, multi-scale experimental testing, performance-based design for hazard mitigation, advanced monitoring techniques, and finite element and computational modeling.
