About Logan A. Perry

Logan Perry is an Assistant Professor of Engineering Education in the Department of Civil & Environmental Engineering. His work contains a unique blend of engineering education and civil engineering projects. Dr. Perry's current work centers on understanding how students transfer their knowledge between engineering school and work. This is supplemented by his role in developing assessment techniques for two NSF-funded projects focused on the incorporation of virtual and mixed reality technology into civil engineering education. In addition, his past civil engineering research investigated the behavior of wood shear wall structures under seismic loading conditions. Dr. Perry’s expertise in both the engineering education and civil engineering domains provide him with a unique skillset that drives his interests in learning and technical engineering work.

Honors and Awards
