This fall, I will be joining the engineering faculty at Baldwin Wallace University as an Assistant Professor. I will be teaching EGR-200 Statics & Dynamics, EGR-463 Engineering Seminar, and EGR-464 Engineering Capstone I.

I recently completed my Ph.D. studies in Civil and Environmental Engineering at Carnegie Mellon University, under the supervision of Professors Hae Young Noh and Pei Zhang. I received my bachelor's degree and master's degree in Civil Engineering from Case Western Reserve University in 2009 and 2010, respectively. I am a registered professional engineer in New York State (PE #093274) and I have over 6 years of experience as a structural design engineer.

My research is highly interdisciplinary and focuses on combining physical and data-based models for indoor occupant monitoring using structural vibration sensing. This research field fuses concepts from Civil/Structural Engineering, Electrical/Computer Engineering, Computer Science, and the medical domain. Specifically, I have worked on how to leverage structural vibration sensing to monitor human gait health. Through this research I have collaborated with Allegheny Health Network in Pittsburgh, PA, Nationwide Children's Hospital in Columbus, OH, and elder care facilities in the Pittsburgh area including Baptist Homes and Vincentian Homes. My current research includes estimating footstep ground reaction forces and gait balance symmetry and separating combined vibration signals from multiple concurrent walkers.
