I believe quality research stems from aiming to solve complex problems for the benefit
of society. These problems are often inter-disciplinary and require collaboration
across multiple fields of study. My main research area is in geotechnical earthquake
engineering but I am also interested in engineering education, rehabilitation of dams
and levees, soil structure interaction and efficient residential home energy design.
