    Professor Dan Frangopol is the inaugural holder of the Fazlur R. Khan Endowed Chair of Structural Engineering and Architecture at Lehigh University. Before joining Lehigh University in 2006, he was Professor of Civil Engineering at the University of Colorado at Boulder, where he is now Professor Emeritus. He is recognized as a leader in the field of life-cycle engineering of civil and marine structures. His main research interests are in the application of probabilistic concepts and methods to civil and marine engineering including structural reliability, probability-based design and optimization of buildings, bridges and naval ships, life-cycle performance maintenance, management and cost of structures and infrastructures under uncertainty, risk-based assessment and decision-making, and infrastructure sustainability and resilience to disasters. He is the Founding President of the International Associations for Bridge Maintenance and Safety (IABMAS) and Life-Cycle Civil Engineering (IALCCE). He is the Founding Editor of international peer-reviewed journal Structure and Infrastructure Engineering. Dr. Frangopol is the recipient of several prestigious awards from ASCE, IABSE, IASSAR, and other professional organizations, such as the OPAL Award, Newmark Medal, Alfredo Ang Award, T.Y. Lin Medal, F. R. Khan Medal, and Croes Medal (twice). He holds 4 honorary doctorates and 12 honorary professorships from major universities. He is a foreign member of the Academia Europaea (Academy of Europe, London) and the Royal Academy of Belgium, an Honorary Member of the Romanian Academy, and a Distinguished Member of ASCE.
