Founding Principal Investigator & Director

Stephen Mahin
(1946-2018)

The SimCenter acknowledges the contributions and tremendous insight of Stephen A. Mahin, who was key in developing our vision of using next-generation computational modeling and simulation software to mitigate the effects of natural hazards. As Founding Principal Investigator and Director of the SimCenter, Professor Mahin worked tirelessly in the interest of improving decision-making and strengthening community resilience to earthquakes, storms, and other extreme hazards. His colleagues will miss his intellectual curiosity and drive that brought the compelling, complex vision into reality. Stephen A. Mahin passed away on February 10, 2018, but through his efforts, the SimCenter moves forward with a strong, multi-disciplinary, organizational foundation and vision.
