After spending a summer working as a timber framer while studying engineering and architecture in college, I developed a strong interest in the strength and structural performance of timber buildings. Since starting my current research project, I have been working to develop a non-destructuve method for assessing the structural characteristics of timber joinery. The goal of the research would be to assist design and construction teams in their work to efficiently adapt and reuse timber buildings for current needs.
Graduate Research Topic
My current research involves providing better information for the reuse and rehabilitation of timber structures. Specifically I have been working to develop a method to determine the rotational stiffness of timber joinery using vibration analysis.
