Thomas Gernay, assistant professor in the Department of Civil and Systems Engineering, has been honored with the National Science Foundation’s Early CAREER Award.
This award recognizes early-career researchers who have demonstrated a significant level of promise and excellence.
Thomas is the founder and leader of the Multi-Hazard Resilient Structures research group at Johns Hopkins. Thomas has been developing innovative means to advance the resilience of the built environment against fire. His pioneering project, titled “Performance-Based Fire Design for Cold-Formed Steel Structures,” has received a five-year grant that will enable more precise modeling of the effects of fire on cold-formed steel structures.
This project will revolutionize our understanding of the field of fire design and materials science.
