About

Constantly seeking to learn and master new industry skills, I partner with expert teams and colleagues to conduct research, experimentation, and data analyses, building holistic data to inform strategic project planning and execution.

With a wealth of professional and academic experience, I support and participate in field engineering initiatives. Able to clearly communicate complex technical data and concepts to non-engineering professionals, I ensure project plans align with site specific needs, client requirements, and safety standards.

Performs a supporting technical role in more complex projects demanding my supervision of field assignments, construction observation, and completion of field reports as the primary author.
    • Construction supervision for pile installation on pedestrian bridge for plumb/battered piles being driven along various bents, monitoring and recording blow counts as well as day-to-day field operations, scheduling updates between contractors and project engineers, and generating technical written field reports with construction summaries.
    • FDR Mix Design includes Site Layout/Evaluation on existing road/parking lot conditions, coring and drilling for collection of surface and subsurface materials on various roads. DCP Testing, managing material preparations (sieving and air drying), batching, performing proctor compaction testing for optimal water content, and development of soil cement for compressive loading to determine optimal cement incorporation during FDR construction.
    • Performing settlement calculations for various segments of retaining walls structures.
  • Constructions Service Laboratory Technician S&ME · Full-time Jun 2021 – Sep 2021 3 mos Atlanta, GA, United States During my time as a CMT Laboratory Technician, my responsibilities revolved around primarily performing various testing procedures for masonry lab, geotechnical and aggregate lab, and project sites. Performing testing procedures in these labs required me to follow testing procedures following various standards (ASTM or AASHTO) to:
    • Manage concrete materials to allow for appropriate storage/curing time before testing to ensure materials are meeting specified strength.
    • Make modifications to materials to ensure high-quality testing conditions: Cutting even/ flush surfaces for irregular protrusions in concrete materials, capping soil cement and grout cubes with sulfur to tailor the surface testing area to breaking heads.
    • Break concrete cylinders/ beams, grout prisms, grout cubes, and soil cement in accordance with ASTM Standard Testing procedures by compressive loading and generating daily break logs.
    • Visual soil classifications that characterize boring logs per boring layout for various sites and projects, assigning moisture contents for various borings, Atterberg Limits: determination of both the plastic /liquid limits of various soils, sieve analysis, proctor compaction (modified and standard).
  • Graduate Research & Teaching Assistant Georgia Institute of Technology · Full-time Jan 2019 – May 2021 2 yrs 4 mos Atlanta, GA, United States In my time as a Graduate Research and Teaching Assistant, I conducted graduate-level research on the hydraulic conductivity of components within a fly ash material. Partnering with colleagues and my supervisor, I drove the planning, strategizing, and execution of investigative testing and analysis initiatives to evaluate and characterize materials.
