Fae Azhari received her BSc and MASc degrees in Civil engineering from Isfahan University of Technology and the University of British Columbia, respectively. After working in the industry for a few years, she returned to school and completed her MEng degree in Industrial Engineering and Operations Research at the University of California, Berkeley, and her PhD in Structural Engineering and Mechanics at the University of California, Davis.
Fae is interested in structural health monitoring (SHM) and prognosis of engineering systems. Her main areas of research are twofold: (I) sensor development and assessing the performance of novel sensing devices, and (II) developing decision-making frameworks that use probabilistic models to translate collected data into meaningful information and efficient remedial strategies for various infrastructure systems.

Prof. Fae Azhari, cross-appointed with CivMin and MIE, has received funding through the Connaught New Researcher awards for smart bridge decks. Azhari relates her research: Cracks, corrosion, and other defects are becoming an all too familiar sight in our aging concrete infrastructure. Concrete bridge decks are especially susceptible to deterioration due to ageing, chloride-induced corrosion,… Read more »
This story originally appeared on U of T Engineering News. Canada will spend $125 billion on infrastructure maintenance and expansion in the next 10 years. Professor Fae Azhari (MIE, CivE) is helping stretch those dollars farther by keeping our buildings, bridges, roads and reservoirs safe and structurally sound for longer. Azhari’s research focuses on structural… Read more »
Collaboration is the key to success and the driving factor behind the hiring of two new professors that are cross-appointed with the Departments of Mechanical and Industrial Engineering, and Civil Engineering. Professors Marianne Touchie (CivE, MIE) and Fae Azhari (MIE, CivE) joined the Faculty at the beginning of July. Professor Touchie completed a BASc and… Read more »
