University of Houston, Houston, TX (Doctoral Candidate) 2006 to 2010
Teaching Assistant - Structural Dynamics, Structural Analysis, Material Mechanics
Research Assistant - TC Hsu Structural Research Laboratory.
Research assistant - Performed and coordinated multi-phase experimental research program funded by the National Science Foundation (NSF) and Texas Department of Transportation to determine the constitutive properties of prestressed steel fiber concrete Membrane elements. Membrane element behavior forms the basis of analysis for shear structures such as girder webs, reactor containment, and offshore platform structures. Maintained and upgraded facilities in the structural testing laboratory, including electrical systems, upgrade of panel element testing machine, and implementing safe work processes. Supervised and mentored four students for the NSF’s Research Experiences for Undergraduates (REU) program. Developed NSF research grant proposals in conjunction with prospective Principal Investigators.
Teaching assistant - Graduate and undergraduate engineering courses, taught lab classes, graded term papers, class assignments, design projects and tests. Organized tutorial sessions for students outside of class.
Ibis Engineering, Galveston, TX 2005 to present
