Dr. Chengcheng Tao is an assistant professor in the School of Construction Management Technology at Purdue University. Dr. Tao earned her Ph.D. degree in Civil Engineering from the University of Florida. Prior to joining Purdue, Dr. Tao worked as an ORISE postdoctoral research fellow at U.S. DOE National Energy Technology Laboratory (NETL).
Dr. Tao’s research interests include sustainable construction materials and manufacturing, multi-objective optimization and machine learning algorithms, energy efficiency solutions and carbon footprint reduction strategies, infrastructure hazard mitigation, computational fluid dynamics (CFD) modeling, and multiscale modeling for polycrystalline alloys.
Ph.D. graduate assistant positions with full financial support are available (starting from Spring/Fall 2022) in the SIMU Lab. Detailed information could be found:
