Civil/Structural Engineer PE, MLSE in Houston, TX

Professional Profile

A Senior Structural Engineer with over 10 years of engineering experience including forensic investigations ? assessing damages and providing repair recommendations for structures subjected to storm-induced forces (e.g. tornados, high winds), vehicle/vessel impacts, tree impacts, fires, explosions, moisture intrusion, construction deficiencies, and excessive gravity loading. As part of his experience, he has completed the analysis and design of commercial and industrial structures comprised of steel, concrete, masonry, and timber located in high seismic and windstorm regions. While attending graduate school, he was directly involved in the evaluation of reinforced elastomers employed to mitigate blast loading-induced shrapnel in masonry walls. In addition, he had a lead role in research focusing on biological material characterization and replication (biomimicry) using composite materials. As a result of this experience and education, he gained extensive knowledge on the behavior of common construction materials and their failure mechanisms, as well as an in-depth understanding of structural analysis and design principles ? which is evidenced by his designation as a Model Law Structural Engineer (MLSE) by the National Council of Examiners for Engineering and Surveying (NCEES).
