civil/ construction/ architectural engineering, project management
BioKarilin is currently a civil engineer for the City and County of San Francisco - Department of Public Works. Karilin's career and experience includes overseeing public capital improvement projects from conceptual design through construction build out and end user maintenance. Her portfolio includes aviation redevelopments, heavy structural upgrades to historical facilities, and commercial projects. Karilin is passionate in shaping a better world to support the changing society we all take part in. She is inspired to build for the people and often rewarded by her projects as she points back to her experiences and says "I helped design and build that!" Karilin is thrilled by challenges and is ecstatic to mentor those interested in the field. In her free time, she rock climbs and explores national parks.
Life Cycle Design using 3D, 4D, and 5D Analysis
Select a infrastructure piece of your choice. We will use different civil / construction engineering software to identify, analyze, and propose solutions. For every session, we may focus on a unique aspect of the design or construction in chronological order that may include 3D modeling, 4D scheduling, or 5D estimations (note: software is available free of charge to students through Autodesk student licenses). Ultimately, we can compile these findings and pitch a mock project proposal presentation as a deliverable not limited to drawings, models, animations, and other components.
With Covid19's global impact, the desire for outdoor, socially distant spaces and activities continues to grow. Let's design an outdoor recreation area that educates users on sustainable construction and allows for a variety of socially distant activities in an outdoor setting. Depending on your interest of architectural or civil engineering (or both), we can tackle this problem and incorporate unique urbanizing techniques while addressing sustainable development concerns. We can compile these findings and pitch a project proposal presentation as a deliverable
Environmental analysis of selected technology and infrastructure
Select a infrastructure or engineering issue and perform an in-depth environmental assessment via cogent problem statement, critical review, investigation of feasible solutions or alternatives for decision makers or policy makers in society at large.
