  • Structural Dynamics
  • Performance-based Engineering
  • Public Health Emergency Preparedness and Response

Dr. Mitrani-Reiser's research is focused on the performance assessment of critical infrastructure, the safety and economic impact of hazards on the built environment, the effective communication of these risks to the public, informed decision making for use in emergency management and policy making, and the interaction of humans with the built environment. Her multidisciplinary research program includes collaborations with researchers at the Bloomberg School of Public Health, the Johns Hopkins School of Medicine, the Pacific Earthquake Engineering Research (PEER) Center, the University of Canterbury, the Pontificia Universidad Católica de Chile, the Mid-America Earthquake (MAE) Center, NEES, the Florida Public Hurricane Loss Project, as well as professional engineers and architects. She has also consulted for the Applied Technology Council (ATC) on their development of the "Next Generation Guidelines for Seismic Performance Assessment of Buildings." 

Dr. Mitrani-Reiser is a member of the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE), the Earthquake Engineering Research Institute (EERI), and the Society of Risk Analysis (SRA). She is the Secretary for ASCE's Subcommittee on Multi-Hazard Mitigation, and is a founding member of ASCE's Committee on Disaster Resilience of Structures, Infrastructures and Communities and the Structural Engineering Institute's Young Professionals Committee. She is currently the faculty advisor for the Society of Professional Hispanic Engineers and is the founder of the Postdoctoral Association at Johns Hopkins University.
