Hi - I'm Dave Denkenberger. Thank you for visiting my homepage.

I am an assistant professor of architectural engineering at Tennessee State University. I am also an Associate at the Global Catastrophic Risk Institute (GCRI), a nonprofit think tank that engages in research, education, and professional networking in areas related to global catastrophic risks. Please visit our website and consider signing up for our newsletter. Using my best effort to be unbiased, I believe that GCRI is an extremely important group that will be influential in preventing global catastrophes.

I hold a Ph.D. in Civil Engineering from University of Colorado at Boulder (2010), an M.S.E. in Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering from Princeton University (2005), and a B.S. in Engineering Science from Pennsylvania State University (2002).
My personal interests are hiking, reading and inventing. 

Please see my "views" section to learn more about what I believe in.

Remember -- friends don't let friends passively increase the odds that a global catastrophic risk or existential risk will cause serious, global damage to humans or add Homo sapiens to the list of the 99.9 percent of species to have ever existed that are now extinct.
