Roya  Nasimi , Ph.D.

Assistant Professor

Department of Engineering

Dr. Nasimi joined CSUEB as an assistant professor of civil engineering in the Fall of 2023. Prior to this role, she was a postdoc at the University of Nebraska Lincoln, where she served as a lecturer and conducted research during this appointment. She completed her Ph.D. with distinction in structural engineering at the University of New Mexico. She earned her master’s and bachelor’s degrees in structural engineering and civil engineering from The University of Tabriz.  Her unique combination of knowledge in structural engineering, experience in interdisciplinary research, and teaching expertise informs her efforts to leverage cutting-edge technology for sustainable, intelligent infrastructure systems. This work contributes to a stronger economy and a more equitable community. Her research interests include, but are not limited to, structural health monitoring; computer vision; artificial intelligence; and machine learning for monitoring and assessing aging infrastructure. Through her research efforts, Dr. Nasimi collaborated with researchers from different disciplines to design, develop, and leverage both low-cost and high-end systems and sensors ranging from lasers to visual and contact sensors to monitor infrastructures, specifically bridges. She has led in and conducted numerous full-scale bridge experiments to measure the response and changes in bridges before and after imposed damages. She has worked on interdisciplinary and collaborative research in Nebraska, funded by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, focused on various aspects of operational management and technology development, including response measurement, damage detection, and creating data pipelines to enhance infrastructure safety. In the past, she has worked on research projects supported by the Transportation Research Board (TRB), The Transportation Consortium of South-Central States (Tran-SET), and the New Mexico Consortium. Dr. Nasimi is serving as a committee member for two standing committees at TRB.
