Dr. Wanitkorkul is an accomplished structural engineer specialising in analysis and design of various structures subjected to dynamic/seismic excitations.
He has over 10 years of experience in both design and project management of commercial, residential, industrial, powerplant, and underground-structure projects in USA, Australia, New Zealand, Asia, and Middle East. He also has a strong background in research and experiments of structures under seismic/dynamic loadings.
A licensed Professional Engineer, Dr Assawin holds a Ph.D. in Structural Engineering and a Bachelor of Civil Engineering (Honours) from Chulalongkorn University, Thailand. In 2014, Dr. Assawin Wanitkorkul was appointed to the Engineering Institute of Thailand's Board Sub-Committee on engineering for earthquakes and wind loads, based on his wide-ranging expertise and in-depth experience, especially in the analysis and innovative design of structures subjected to seismic excitations.
Prior to his career with Aurecon, Dr. Assawin was a post-doctoral research assistant at the University at Buffalo, New York and has authored and co-authored numerous journal articles on earthquake engineering, structural dynamics and seismic fragility assessments.
