- a holistic human-centered computational framework for the design of resilient cities;
- identification of key typologies, morphologies and their interdependencies by analyzing the urban design and its infrastructure networks;
- an innovative flexible modeling and computational framework that integrate socioeconomic characteristics for simulation and resilience optimization (damage tolerance) of the critical infrastructure;
- a novel optimization framework that will facilitate making damage tolerance decisions that can achieve anticipatory resilience in face of disaster uncertainty;
- new identified interdependences, trends, and typologies of socioeconomic system of highly urbanized coastal communities based on the cities of Miami and Miami Beach in Florida.
In summary, this research will lay the scientific foundation for envisioning and redesigning resilient coastal cities making them ready to meet anticipated future challenges.
