I manage the day to day operations of the Harry E. Bovay Jr. Civil Infrastructure Laboratory Complex, providing technical and managerial support for lab users and projects being performed within the lab. The CI Lab Complex includes facilities for Cornell's NEES Lifelines System Research Facility, soil/structure interaction testing, geotechnical, structural and earthquake engineering research and concrete materials research. The Bovay Complex provides support for geotechnical and structural engineering course laboratory components during both spring and fall semesters. Student community service and competitive projects are supported in the Bovay Complex. The Engineers for a Sustainable World solar cooker development program with Grupo Fenix (an ngo) and Las Mujeres Solares de Totogalpa (a rural women’s collective in northern Nicaragua) has been building, testing and evolving the design of solar cookers (for more information, see the Solar Cooker Website). The American Society of Civil Engineers Student Chapter concrete canoe and steel bridge teams work in the lab.
