Ph.D. Candidate in Structural Engineering at Stanford University

Hi, welcome to my website. I am a Ph.D. Candidate in Structural Engineering at Stanford University, advised by Prof. Jack Baker. My doctoral research involves using various statistical techniques to benchmark, validate, and improve loss predictions of performance-based earthquake engineering assessment procedures. My other research interests include disaster recovery and resilience modeling, probabilistic risk analysis, and seismic hazard characterization. I am an active participant in the Stanford Urban Resilience Initiative (SURI), a nexus for generating next-generation tools for resilient communities.

I have degrees in Civil Engineering from Stanford University (M.S. 2016) and University College Cork, Ireland (B.E. 2014 - first place). I also have related professional experience in Atkins, U.K. My awards include the Stanford Graduate Fellowship, the John A. Blume Research Fellowship, and the University College Cork Science and Engineering Graduate of the Year Gold Medal.

Thank you for reading. I look forward to sharing my research, ideas, and enthusiasm for the field of Structural Engineering.
