Dr. Gong studies the resilience of infrastructure and building systems to intensified natural and anthropogenic disturbances by direct impacts such as hurricane, tsunami, and cumulative and secondary impacts such as climate change and sea level rise. Among other things, one of his particular research focuses is on studying the convergence approaches in remote sensing, infrastructure analysis, artificial intelligence, and system modeling and simulation for resilient coastal communities. His group is often deployed in the field to conduct forensic studies of extreme weather events with the eventual goal of turning disaster data into knowledge to inform resilient rebuild needs.
