BIO

I'm a PhD Student researching disasters and their regional impacts through the use of multiple data sources that are rapidly available after an earthquake. My recent work has involved looking at how we assess building damage, through both new and traditional methods, by examining multiple earthquakes: Haiti 2010, Christchurch 2011, and Nepal 2015. As part of the Stanford Urban Resilience Initiative, I'm co-advised by Professors Jack Baker (Stanford) and David Lallemant (Nanyang Technological University) and collaborating with Kathmandu Living Labs, NASA-JPL/ARIA, and the World Bank.

In the past, I've been involved with structural design and managing construction projects, both in the U.S. and abroad. Please check out my projects page for details!

Current fascinations: international community development, data-informed decisions, resilient cities, and rating San Francisco ice cream shops.
