Dr. Shafiee is a California Registered Civil Engineer with over 20 years of experience at the international level in the field of geotechnical earthquake engineering. He has analyzed subsurface information on a wide range of infrastructure projects, with specific emphasis on seismic hazard evaluation and mitigation for major projects such as bridges, dams, piers, buildings, roadways, tunnels, and power plants. His expertise includes characterization of subsurface material static and dynamic properties, liquefaction evaluation, seismic hazard analysis and ground motion characterization. Dr. Shafiee has worked on some of the largest projects in California, including the High-Speed Rail (HSR), LAX Automated People Mover (APM), I-15 Express Lanes, and Pier 22.5 in the Bay Area. He has been the lead hazard analyst for the ground motion development on many performance-based high rise building projects in downtown San Diego including Union and Ash, Milano, Courthouse Commons and India and Beech. These ground motion evaluations included the selection and spectral matching of horizontal pairs of appropriate earthquake time histories, performed in accordance with the 2013 and 2016 California Building Code, ASCE 7-10, ASCE 7-16, and ASCE 61-14 requirements. He has also been involved in the liquefaction evaluation and seismic hazard analysis of the San Dieguito Double Track and Special Events Platform project. Dr. Shafiee serves as the voting member of two ASCE 7-28 committees: TC1: Seismic Committee and TC5: Foundation and Site Characterization Committee He also serves on the Board of the American Society of Civil Engineers Los Angeles Branch Geo-Institute. He also teaches courses on Geotechnical Earthquake Engineering, Advanced Foundation Engineering, Earth Slope Engineering and Embankment Dams, and Earth Retaining Walls at the Cal Poly Pomona.
