  • CVEN 699: Engineering Risk Analysis (Texas A&M University)

Graduate course that focuses on applications of probability theory, statistics, and decision analysis to civil/structural engineering problems. Emphasis is placed on probabilistic modeling and analysis of civil engineering problems, bayesian statistics, risk analysis, and decision under uncertainty.

Fall 2018 (Enrollment: 25)

  • CVEN 363: Engineering Mechanics - Dynamics (Texas A&M University)

Undergraduate course that focuses on particle and planar rigid body kinematics and kinetics, Newton’s laws of motion and the ability to apply energy and momentum methods to particles and rigid bodies in planar motion and an introductory knowledge of vibrations in one degree of freedom systems.

Spring 2018 (Enrollment: 68); Spring 2019 (Enrollment: 75); Fall 2019 (Enrollment: 76); Spring 2020 (Enrollment: 51)

  • CVEN 446: Structural Steel Design (Texas A&M University)

Undergraduate senior course that emphasizes in the design of structural steel elements found in building structures, including tension members, compression members, beams, beam-columns and base plates, design of bolted and welded simple connections; design of bolted eccentric connections as well as design of bolted and welded partially and fully restrained connections.

Fall 2017 (Enrollment: 24)

  • CIE 429: Reinforced Concrete Design (University at Buffalo) - Summer 2013

Undergraduate senior course that focuses on the strength (LRFD) analysis and design of reinforced concrete members subjected to compression, shear and bending to code provisions (ACI 318-11 and ASCE 7-10, current at the time the course was given). Topics include the analysis and design of beams, slabs, columns and frames.


Teaching Training:

  • 2019 ExCEEd Teaching Workshop, The American Society of Civil Engineers, University of Nebraska Lincoln

The ExCEEd Teaching Workshop is a six-day practicum that provides engineering educators with an opportunity to improve their teaching abilities. The main learning objectives are: 1) Explaining what constitutes effective teaching, 2) Applying learning style models to the organization and conduct of a class, 3) Using Classroom Assessment Techniques to assess student learning, 4) Organizing a class, 5) Delivering classroom instruction, 6) Assessing a class from a student’s perspective and 7) Self-assessing your own class.

  • HELLO2 Teaching Certificate Program, Center for Teaching Excellence, Texas A&M University.

The Humanizing Education, Learning, and Leadership On/Offline (HELLO2) program is designed to provide faculty and staff opportunities to learn more about the following focus areas: 1) Active Learning and Student Engagement, 2) Transformational Teaching and Learning, 3) Learner-Centered Teaching, and 4) Instructional Technology for Student Learning and Engagement.
