AIS-Nishio lab is conducting the research on "intelligent" infrastructure systems. Our main fields are Structural Engineering and Applied Mechanics in Civil Engineering, although, we make full use of technologies and methods across fields such as Advanced Sensing, Data Science, and Computational Engineering to make our infrastructures that face aging and risk of disasters safe and sustainable.
NISHIO Mayuko, Ph.D., Associate professor
- Performance evaluation of existing structures considering aging effects, data assimilation, uncertainty quantification, Bayesian model updating, structural reliability, seismic fragility and risk analysis, bridge traffic load capacity evaluation.
- Structural health monitoring, vision-based sensing, environmental and operational effects, system identification, time-series analysis, statistical pattern recognition, signal processing.
- Surrogate modeling for performance evaluation of civil structures, Gaussian process regression, physics-informed machine learning, finite element method (FEM), model V&V.
- AI and machine learning technologies for structural engineering, object detection, segmentation, computer vision, point cloud data, 3D model, UAV, bridge inspection.
Nishio Lab welcomes the applications from international students interested in pursuing graduate studies in the Department of Engineering Mechanics and Energy with an interest in related topics. Students interested in pursuing a PhD with relevant background and experience are particularly encouraged to apply. Interested candidates can contact Dr. Nishio (nishio[at]kz.tsukuba.ac.jp) by indicating research interest and attaching their CV and other relevant materials. For general admission information, please access the webpage of the University of Tsukuba and the Department of Engineering Mechanics and Energy. This also includes information and guidelines about scholarships for studying in Japan (MEXT scholarship, etc.).
