Gery Vargas

Albalyra "Gery" Vargas
, Women's Welcome Co-Chair [agvargas[at]mit[dot]edu].  Albalyra, or as everyone knows her “Gery”, is a second year SM Candidate in Civil and Environmental Engineering with a focus on Geotechnical Engineering. Her research is on the characterization of triaxial compression undrained shear behavior of Resedimented Boston Blue Clay at very high overconsolidation ratios.
Gery joins GWAMIT after attending several events of the organization held during her first year at MIT. She became a co-chair for the 2012 Orientation Women's Welcome Lunch and is currently an Event Lead for the Fall 2012 Leadership Conference. She wants women in STEM to continue playing an important role in the world development and thinks that GWAMIT is an excellent place to improve this.
