I am interested in understanding hurricane and flood impacts to infrastructure. I am involved in research focused on creating component-scale flood damage analysis models for structures. I am also interested in evaluating the sustainability of infrastructure and products through life cycle analysis and research that investigates the intersection of sustainability and resilience. I have also collaborated on efforts related to broadening participation in STEM and increasing diversity.
