I grew up in Staten Island, New York after moving at a young age from Warsaw, Poland. Before coming to Cornell, I completed my B.S. in Structural Engineering at Columbia University. In my senior year, Hurricane Sandy struck, ravaging many parts of New York City. This event sparked my interest in fluid structure interaction and 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 coupled simulation in the context of condition based assessment and prognosis. My research interests include predictive analysis using finite element methods and bayesian inference, fluid structure interaction in the context of coastal engineering, disaster preparedness, and structural health monitoring especially in infrastructure of historical value. When I do have a moment of free time, I enjoy cooking and binge watching television, often in tandem.
