  • Gregory Deierlein

    Gregory Deierlein

    John A. Blume Professor in the School of Engineering

    BioDeierlein's research focuses on improving limit states design of constructed facilities through the development and application of nonlinear structural analysis methods and performance-based design criteria. Recent projects include the development and application of strength and stiffness degrading models to simulate steel and reinforced concrete structures, seismic design and behavior of composite steel-concrete buildings, analysis of inelastic torsional-flexural instability of steel members, and a fracture mechanics investigation of seismically designed welded steel connections.

  • Herman Alexander Donner

    Herman Alexander Donner

    Research Scientist

    BioI am a Research Scientist at the Disruptive Technology and Digital Cities program, and engage with our affiliated companies to identify relevant technology, develop and lead research projects. I conduct the research relating to urban economics and IoT.

    My research has covered issues such as the impact of a foreclosure on real estate sale price, the income-distributional effects of rent control, and informational asymmetries on the housing market. I have academic publications within the fields of real estate finance, housing economics, and law.

    I have also conducted several policy-related research projects, such as co-authoring a report on the distributional effects of rent control for the Swedish Fiscal Policy Council, developing best practice guidelines for appraisal of development land for the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS) in Sweden, and writing a white-paper on technology that improves mobility in cities published by Visa Inc.

    I have been engaged in local politics in my hometown of Vaxholm, Sweden, as an elected member of city council.
