Dr. Ko joined the Department of Civil Engineering and Construction Engineering Management at CSULB in Fall 2009. He received his B.S. degree in Structural Engineering from National Taiwan University of Science and Technology, Taipei, Taiwan in 1997 and his M.S. and Ph.D. (outstanding Ph.D. award recipient) degrees in 2001 and 2005, respectively, in Civil Engineering focusing on Structural Mechanics and Structural Engineering/Dynamics from University of California Los Angeles.
Prior to joining CSULB, Dr. Ko was a postdoctoral researcher and lecturer at UCLA and senior structural design engineer at Englekirk and Sabol Consulting Structural Engineers, Inc. He is a registered Professional Civil Engineer in the state of California.
Dr. Ko's areas of research interest include:
Dr. Ko also performed various experiments to study the mechanics of materials, including the ultrasonic nondestructive test (NDT), the direct tension/compression tests of concrete subjected to environmental attack, and experimental fracture mechanics.
He has made presentations at several national and international conferences and published several innovative research papers in peer-reviewed journals such as International Journal of Damage Mechanics, Acta Mechanica, Journal of Sandwich Structures & Materials, ASCE Journal of Nanomechanics and Micromechanics, and other technical journals. He actively participates in ASCE, ASME, AISC, SEAOSC, IACM, USACM, and other national and international societies. He is also a peer reviewer for the International Journal of Damage Mechanics, Acta Mechanica, Journal of Engineering Mechanics - ASCE, Composites Part A, Engineering Structures, International Journal of Theoretical and Applied Multiscale Mechanics, and other technical journals.
