Professor, University of California, Los Angeles
John W Wallace, Ph.D., C.E, F. ACI, F. ASCE, professor of civil engineering at the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA), is an internationally recognized expert on the seismic behavior of reinforced concrete structures. His research contributions focus on assessing the behavior of structures subjected to earthquake loading, laboratory and field testing of structural components and systems, developing and validating models for structural analysis and design, and using sensors to measure structural responses and interactions. He has actively participated in updates to ASCE 41, ASCE 7, and ACI 318, as well as the PEER TBI and LATBSDC guidelines for tall buildings.
