About Me

I'm a civil engineer interested in solving problems at the intersection of infrastructure, climate change, and finance. 

My primary area of expertise is flood risk quantification, specifically for rail rapid transit infrastructure (i.e., figuring out how tunnels flood and what gets damaged as a consequence). During my time as a member of the MIT Transit Lab working under Professor Andrew Whittle, I conducted interdisciplinary research developing climate adaptation planning tools for Boston's regional transit authority (MBTA). As a freshly minted PhD and DoD SMART Scholar, I'm currently a Civil Engineer in the Plan Formulation Branch at USACE NY District

My work focuses on quantifying the costs of climate change to infrastructure systems, valuing climate adaptation projects for infrastructure, and developing decision support tools for prioritizing climate adaptation investments. Ultimately, I am to advance the state of engineering practice by providing innovative techniques and insights that remain approachable to practicing engineers, infrastructure managers, and planners.
