  • Engineering seismology, including basin and site response, seismic hazard & risk
  • Earthquake geotechnical hazards, tsunami and their impacts
  • Influence of society, policy, culture, and emergency management on earthquake risk, and community resilience
  • Digital tools, machine learning (AI) and emerging technologies in earthquake engineering
  • Seismic performance, risk mitigation and resilience of new and existing structures
  • Earthquake geotechnical design including soil-structure interaction
  • Quantifying and addressing uncertainties in seismic design
  • Sustainability and decarbonisation in design practice
  • Design and performance of lifelines and infrastructure
  • Building code compliance, building legislation, standards development, land-use and planning
  • Other topics related to earthquake engineering
