Mr. Hussaini from Iran recently joined the S4H team as a Ph.D. student. Sajad graduated from Sharif University of Technology, Iran, in 2018. His thesis investigated the experimental fracture behaviour and mechanical characteristics of rammed earth materials. He also participated in a national project for the seismic retrofit of residential buildings in Kermanshah, Iran, after the Mw=7.3 earthquake. In addition, he worked as a structural engineer in Cultural Heritage projects in Kabul, Afghanistan, sponsored by the United Nations. Starting from November 2020, he was also served as a lecturer at the Avicenna University in Kabul, Afghanistan.
His professional experience in the field of Civil Engineering triggered his passion for topics of Earthquake Engineering and Seismology, particularly seismic hazard assessment and earthquake ground motion modelling. During the S4H project, he will mainly be responsible for WP1, which addresses the influence of variability in seismic signal on the out-of-plane seismic response and capacity of masonry structures. In particular, his focus will be on modelling the stochastic behaviour of ground motion records for earthquakes (https://stand4heritage.org/team/sayed-mohammad-sajad-hussaini/).
