Xinyi Song is an assistant professor in the School of Building Construction at Georgia Tech. Her work focuses on collecting, simulating, analyzing, and representing data and information to support risk management and operation optimization in complex built environments. The goal is to promote social, economic, and environmental sustainability throughout a building’s life cycle by incorporating human factors into the decision making process. Dr.
Chloe Arson is an Assistant Professor in the School of Civil and Environmental Engineering at the Georgia Institute of Technology. She teaches Mechanics of Materials, Finite Element Methods and Tunneling. She is a theoretical and numerical expert in damage and healing rock mechanics, thermo-chemo-poromechanics, and underground storage. She received two research prizes for my Ph.D. on nuclear waste disposals. She regularly gives lectures in Europe and the U.S., organizes sponsored research workshops, and serves as a reviewer for more than 25 journals.
Wenting Sun received his B.E. and M.E. degrees in Engineering Physics from Tsinghua University, Beijing where his studies focused on non-equilibrium plasmas. After that, he graduated from Princeton University, department of mechanical and aerospace engineering working on plasma assisted combustion and combustion kinetics. Shortly after graduation, he joined Georgia Tech in 2013. His primary research interests lie in a broad range of reacting flows (combustion & plasmas) and propulsion systems.
Jason Brown is originally from Arcadia, Florida. He received his BS in Engineering from Baylor University and his MS in Mechanical Engineering and Ph.D. in Architecture degrees from Georgia Tech. Prior to working in architecture, he engaged in experimental fluid mechanics with applications in biological cell culture, the sensory ecology of marine plankton, and the carbon cycle in the oceans.
