Sujith Mangalathu is a post-doctoral research scholar at University of California, Los Angeles working under the supervision of Dr. Henry Burton. He obtained his Ph.D. from Georgia Institute of Technology, in 2017 with the advice of Dr. Reginald DesRoches and Dr. Jamie Padgett.

His research is focused on the application of machine learning techniques for the risk assessment of structural and infrastructure systems with a special emphasis on bridge systems. He is also working on the
performance-based grouping of structures for regional risk assessment and statistical decisions that support post-earthquake emergency response. He strives to develop innovative methods for regional risk assessment of structural systems using advanced statistical and machine learning techniques.

Sujith Mangalathu is a recipient of the prestigious Nevada Medal for Bridge Engineering in 2017. He is also a technical committee member of the ASCE-SEI TG3 on the risk assessment of                                                                     structural and infrastructural systems.
