Dr. Zou joins NSF funded team to develop a comprehensive digital model of Texas coastal communities

Dr. Lei Zou recently joined an interdisciplinary research team to work on an NSF-funded project "Synchronizing Decision-Support via Human- and Social-centered Digital Twin Infrastructures for Coastal Communities”. This project primarily focuses on the use of digital twins – virtual copies of physical objects and systems that update in real-time to match real-world conditions. The team will develop a digital twin of Galveston and other Texas coastal communities to help planners and citizens understand how planning and infrastructure alterations and additions can affect a community’s natural hazard resilience.
