Bio

I am an Assistant Professor in the Department of Engineering at Hofstra University and I lead the Segal Structures Group. The group engages in material explorations, form generation, and historic analysis related to a range of engineering research, design, and teaching activities.

I received my B.S from Cornell University and my M.S.E. and Ph.D. from Princeton University. In 2008, I was awarded a Skidmore Owings and Merrill (SOM) Structural Engineering Trav­el Fellowship to study European physical modeling and testing laboratories and the structures that emerged from those facilities. The objective of this research was to identify potential roles for physical models as complements to computational models in design and education. In 2017, I received the ExCEED (Excellence in Civil Engineering Education) Teaching Award from the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE). From 2008 to 2011, I worked at Simpson Gumpertz & Heger and I am a licensed Professional Engineer (P.E.) in New York.
