Xin Wei

Schmidt AI in Science Fellow

Michigan Institute for Data Science

Xin’s research interests include risk, reliability, and resilience analysis of natural hazards under climate change, leveraging interdisciplinary approaches such as remote sensing, geospatial modeling, data-driven and physics-based models. Before joining the University of Michigan, he earned his PhD in Civil Engineering from Shanghai Jiao Tong University under the supervision of Prof. Lulu Zhang. He was also a visiting scholar in Prof. Paolo Gardoni’s group at the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign.

In the Schmidt AI in Science Postdoctoral Fellowship, he will explore integrated AI-Physics solutions to understand the impact of past landslides on communities and to develop risk assessment tools that will mitigate future impacts.
