Civil Engineering, Structural protective systems, Structural Impacts
BioI am a structural engineer interested in seismic isolation systems, which are devices that help mitigate the effects of earthquakes on structural systems. More specifically, I have worked on modelling of Lead Rubber Bearings and developing a nonlinear model that more accurately capture the nonlinear effects of such devices. More broadly, I have experience in environmental, water resources, and transportation engineering. In my spare time I love to play soccer and recently picked up mountain biking over the course of the pandemic. I also, recently picked up guitar playing, and really love to learn new things!
Is damage of a building preventable even considering a catastrophic earthquake event?
In this project we could delve into considered a large earthquake, is there a way to avoid collapse, and even damage altogether. How? (Preferred: any coding experience, Calculus, Physics.)
Structural Protective Systems
Strucutral protective systems that reduce the damage in the buildings and look into the benefits of such systems such as Damper devices and Isolation systems. (Preferred: any coding experience, some Calculus, Physics.)
Analyzing Impacts to Structures
In this project researching methods of mitigating impacts to structures whether it is from structural systems or the design of the structure. (Preferred: any coding experience, Calculus, Physics.)
