Prestigious Rutherford Discovery Fellowship Awarded to Brendon Bradley
Civil and Natural Resources Engineering academic Brendon Bradley has been awarded one of 10 prestigious Rutherford Discovery Fellowships providing $800,000 funding over five years to further his research. His research will make use of state-of-the-art analyses, combined with unique datasets and world-leading research expertise, to shed light on several profound ground motion observations from the 2010-2011 Canterbury earthquakes which remain unresolved. As a result, the research will develop a unifed understanding of the seismic response of urban areas residing on sedimentary basins with liquefiable soils. This research will have a national and international impact in the assessment, and potential mitigation of, earthquake hazards in major cities.
