Doaa Bondok is an assistant professor of structural engineering in the Sid and Reva Dewberry Department of Civil, Environmental, and Infrastructure Engineering. Prior to her appointment at Mason, she served as an adjunct faculty at Westminster College in Missouri where she taught and developed engineering courses. She earned her MS and PhD in structural engineering from University of Missouri-Columbia. She received her BS from Zagazig University in Egypt with an Excellence with Honor Award. Before she started her graduate studies in the United States, she worked as a structural design engineer in a consulting firm in Egypt.
Her MS and PhD research work focused on the analysis and design of structures and building components against extreme loads. She managed to develop engineering analysis and prediction models that were utilized to develop enhanced blast-resistant walls. She also evaluated different roof truss systems for their blast resistance using experimental programs and robust numerical simulations. In addition to her research contributions, she is passionate about student learning and success, and integrating research in her teaching pursuits. Her current publications appear in ASCE Journal of Structural Engineering,ASCE Journal of Performance of Constructed Facilities, and Thin-Walled Structures.
