Mohsen Kohrangi (1984) is a seismic risk specialist. He has been actively conducting research on the development of earthquake risk models in recent years. Since 2015 to date he has been a postdoctoral researcher at IUSS Pavia. He holds a Ph.D. in Earthquake Engineering and Engineering Seismology from The Institute for Advanced Study (IUSS) in Pavia (Italy). He received the prestigious European scholarship for Master of Earthquake Engineering and Engineering Seismology (MEEES) and completed his program in University of Patras (Greece) and ROSE School in Pavia (Italy). He obtained his MEng degree (2009) in Structural and Earthquake Engineering at the Amirkabir University of Technology (Iran). Prior to starting his journey to Europe he worked in Dynasys structural design consultancy in Tehran for two years since 2007. His current work and research is mainly focused on the analysis of earthquakes impact and on the development of risk models, focusing especially on the development of vulnerability models, the generation of exposure databases and on the elaboration of loss assessment analyses. His research interests include risk related topics such as performance based earthquake engineering, ground motion record selection, ground motion prediction equations, spectrum matching and portfolio loss estimation. He has published about 10 articles in prestigious journals and several international conferences in the in the field of earthquake engineering.
