I grew up in Staten Island, New York. Before coming to Cornell, I completed my B.S. in Structural Engineering at Columbia University. In my senior year, Hurricane Sandy made landfall on the Jersey Shore, ravaging many parts of New York City. This event sparked my interest in fluid structure interaction and structural health monitoring as I continued to Cornell to further my study of Structural Engineering under the supervision of Dr. Christopher Earls. I am currently studying fluid-structure interaction through a coupled multi-physics simulation and its use in the context of condition assessment and prognosis through reduced order modeling. My future research interests include predictive analysis using finite element methods coupled with other multi-physics analysis (such as climate modeling), fluid structure interaction in the context of coastal engineering (such as storm surge and flooding problems), algorithms for increased computational efficiency, and disaster preparedness and mitigation. When I do have a moment of free time, I enjoy trying new food, practicing pilates and yoga, and listening to true crime podcasts.
