Dr. Hing-Ho Tsang is a Senior Lecturer at Swinburne University in Melbourne, Australia and is staying at GPI for a research visit from June 11 to July 17, 2016. He is a structural engineer who graduated from University of Hong Kong and developed his research focus on earthquake loss analysis. Hing-Ho is working with the hazard and risk group of GPI on residual fatality risk of earthquakes and loss modelling. He co-supervises a MSc thesis on residual risk modelling and provides 5 lectures in the MSc course on Engineering Geophysics on Earthquake Engineering.
