Using computer science to mitigate earthquake impact

Cyberphysical systems bridge the digital and physical worlds by integrating physical sensors with computational elements to analyze data, make decisions and control physical processes in real-time.

Christopher Gill, a professor of computer science and engineering at the McKelvey School of Engineering at Washington University in St. Louis, is working to improve these systems for applications in earthquake engineering. He won a $597,585 award from the National Science Foundation for his research to assure such systems’ safety and performance.
