Curriculum Vitae

Marios Panagiotou (PhD, PE) is the Advanced Earthquake Engineering Leader at Nabih Youssef & Associates in Los Angeles, founder of Adstran and of the Online School of Earthquake Resilient Design. His engineering practice work focuses on the advanced nonlinear seismic analysis and design of large, complex, earthquake resilient, and seismically isolated structures. As an Assistant Professor of Structural Engineering at UC Berkeley (UCB), 2008 – 2015, he conducted research on the seismic analysis, design, and experimental testing of RC and earthquake resilient buildings and bridges that use seismic isolation and low-damage rocking components. His PhD studies, at UCSD, on the seismic analysis, design, and shake-table testing of a full-scale 7-story building received the 2012 ASCE Alfred Noble prize. As UCB faculty, he led a major Caltrans funded research project that included large scale shake table SSI testing of rocking foundations and he co-led large-scale testing programs of RC components for buildings and bridges. He has published 25 journal papers, and more than 70 conference papers and technical reports. He has taught graduate courses at UCB, UCLA, and USC. He was a member of the NIST-FEMA Functional Recovery Project and current member of 2026 NEHRP PUC IT-5 as well as of ASCE/SEI 7-28 seismic subcommittee. He is co-developer of the seismic analysis computational framework BTM in FE-MultiPhys for RC structures.
