Welcome to my website! I am an assistant professor in the School of Engineering at the University of Vermont. My field of specialization is structural engineering.
Specific areas of expertise include structural mechanics, structural dynamics, earthquake engineering, structural health monitoring, system identification, Bayesian estimation, uncertainty quantification, reliability and risk analysis.
My current research is focused on the development of new mathematical methods and computational algorithms to solve statistical inverse problems in structural mechanics and their application to the reliability assessment of operational and instrumented structural systems. My research has been funded by the National Science Foundation and the Vermont Agency of Transportation. In 2014, I received a Faculty Early Career Development award (CAREER) from the National Science Foundation.
