Short Bio

I obtained my Bachelor of Science in Civil Engineering from Virginia Tech in 2014, with a minor in Engineering Science and Mechanics. After earning my Bachelor’s degree, I continued my studies in graduate school at the University of Texas at Austin, where I obtained my Master of Science in Engineering from the Department of Civil, Architectural Engineering, and subsequently my Doctoral degree in Civil Engineering, in 2019.

To date, I have authored articles in high impact journals in the field of civil and materials engineering, and have presented at prestigious conferences around the world. In addition, I have worked on projects sponsored by the Illinois Department of Transportation and the Texas Department of Transportation and authored technical reports for them.
