Brendon Bradley


Dr. Bradley has shown international research leadership in several emerging fields of earthquake engineering. His most notable research contributions are: (1) system-specific seismic loss assessment and methodologies for performance-based earthquake engineering, including numerous applications to soil-foundation-structure problems. (2) Empirical analysis of ground motion intensity, in particular, detailed analyses of the observed ground motions in the 2010-2011 Canterbury, New Zealand earthquakes; and (3) development and open-source implementation of the generalized conditional intensity measure (GCIM) approach for ground motion selection. Dr. Bradley’s research (including over 65 journal papers) has been highly cited, and he has delivered several plenary and invited lectures at international conferences, particularly in relation to the 2010-2011 Canterbury earthquakes.
