About Me

One of the most rewarding aspects of an academic position is the opportunity to teach and interact with students. Whether or not they realize it, students have the freedom to explore and think about problems in new ways. As teachers, we have the opportunity to guide students’ discoveries and learn a great deal in the process.

Research Interests

My research interests include: soil structure interaction; disaster risk analysis and how to reduce the disaster's impact on structures and citizens; developing the road and bridge maintenance methods
