Assistant Professor
Structural Engineering



Dr. Monique Head


Dr. Monique Hite Head is a native of Newark, Delaware.  She received her bachelor and master of civil engineering degrees from the University of Delaware in 2000 and 2002, respectively, and her doctorate in structural engineering from the Georgia Institute of Technology in May 2007.  In August 2007, she began a tenure-track position as an assistant professor at Texas A&M University, where she conducted reduced- and full-scale experiments that are complemented by structural analysis using state-of-the-art software to study the response of bridges subjected to lateral, dynamic, and impact loads.  Dr. Head continues to conduct research in these areas while an Assistant Professor at Morgan State University since 2011. The broader impact of her research will help to improve the resiliency of our nation’s bridge infrastructure while protecting lives during extreme events.  She is also interested in exploring research in the areas of hybrid simulation of bridges for the assessment of performance-based design, multi-hazard mitigation of transportation structures to establish guidelines for new design and retrofit criteria, and structural health monitoring of bridges.
