About Me

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

I'm currently a Civil Engineer in the Plan Formulation Branch at USACE NY District, where I assist in the planning of coastal flood protection and navigation projects in the greater NYC area. I also advise and collaborate with project teams outside the NY District on issues relating to flood risk quantification for critical infrastructure (my primary area of expertise). 

My prior work has focused flood risk quantification 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).

More generally, 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 applying innovative techniques and insights that remain approachable to practicing engineers, infrastructure managers, and planners.
