Brian Phillips, Ph.D.

Brian M. Phillips is an assistant professor in the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering at the University of Maryland. He received his bachelorís degree from the University of Pittsburgh in 2006, masterís degree from the University of Illinois in 2008, and Ph.D. from the University of Illinois in 2012. His research interests include structural dynamics, structural health monitoring, smart structures, blast and impact loading, and earthquake engineering.

Phillips is interested in taking a detailed understanding of structural and hazard dynamics and applying to large civil engineering challenges including multi-hazard environments. New metrics for resilience and sustainability are needed to accommodate both discrete and long-term hazards to inform design and decision making processes. Phillips is particularly interested in considering incorporating new metrics into performance based design techniques considering lifecycle performance and costs. Hazards of interest include events such as earthquakes and floods as well as long-term climate change. Phillips is also interested in exploring the issues of resiliency and sustainability in the developing world, working with limited resources and considering long-term adoption of solutions.
