Academic Information

Degree Program: Doctor of Philosophy in Civil Engineering
Academic Focus: Simulation of tornado wind loading on buildings


Research Interests

Tornado winds can cause significant damage or, in many cases, failure of building structures. The loading on buildings by tornados, however, is still not well understood. My study will focus on numerically and experimentally simulating tornado winds and evaluating the loading of buildings by these simulated winds.
