Dr Alireza Zabihi’s PhD researched recent earthquakes worldwide and the poor performance of limited-ductile reinforced concrete frame buildings during these earthquakes. Alireza investigated the feasibility of using the single diagonal haunch with post-installed anchors for improving the seismic performance of vulnerable beam-column joints, and found that this less-invasive and more architecturally favourable solution can result in reducing the effect of seismic actions on buildings and consequently diminishing casualties.

Alireza was the recipient of Gold and Silver Medals from MIE2013 and MRC-IIE2014 for the innovation of Rubber Wall Damper and MR Damper, respectively.
He is currently a Structural Test Engineer and Sessional Teacher at the Swinburne University of Technology. In 2019, he was awarded the Sessional Teaching Excellence Award for his work in providing teaching and learning support to students.

His thesis is available here.
