Currently I teach mechanics of materials, seismic design, reinforced concrete design, and structural dynamics for undergraduate civil engineering programs at two local universities. I also work independently in structural engineering design in residential, industrial, and hotel projects in the region.
My graduate studies emphasized earthquake and structural engineering. I received my Doctor of Philosophy in Civil Engineering degree at University of Nevada Reno in 2016, my Master of Science in Civil Engineering at University of Nevada Reno in 2013, and my Bachelor of Science in Civil Engineering at Utah State University in 2011.
Passing knowledge to future generations is one of the things I love the most. Also, making decisions that effectively turn projects from a concept on paper into reality, and all the challenges that all those decisions bring at every step. Most importantly, I love that I can have a positive impact in people’s day to day lives from the decisions I make.
As much as I feel comfortable with. I try to make it as clear as the situation allows, as there is still a lot of discrimination in the workplace, and in general, in my country.
Yes I have, particularly with constant discriminatory comments and remarks. I have brought it up to my direct superior in the past, but it doesn’t always have the best reception.
It has changed everything for me. I wouldn’t have even known I had a passion for earthquake engineering if it wasn’t for my mentors, in particular my graduate studies advisor. I do not have a queer mentor, unfortunately!
