Dr. Solomon Tesfamariam is a professor at the University of British Columbia, Okanagan Campus, in the School of Engineering. He holds Principal’s Research Chair in the Resilient and Sustainable Built Environment (Tier 1) at the UBC Okanagan Campus. Over his 13 years’ tenure at UBC, he has been a leader in the research and pedagogy of resilient tall timber and hybrid buildings. His research outcomes have pushed limits of large-scale engineered cross-laminated timber (CLT) and hybrid structures in the design of high-rise buildings. His tall timber research entails consideration of multi-hazard (earthquake, wind, fire) interactions. His hybrid building design research has been supported by various government and industrial partners. Outcomes of his research are published through industrial reports and various peer-reviewed journals, and have been presented at international conferences.
