Why did you choose structural engineering?
My dad is a civil engineer and as a kid, I admired pictures of him with his hard hat, yellow vest, and his project in the background. I chose civil engineering in my undergrad and was attracted to the structural discipline from my Statics and Mechanics of Materials classes. Now, I look at structures, connections, and supports all around me and have a growing appreciation of the physics behind everything.
What are your favorite hobbies?
As of 2023, I set a goal of running a mile every day, and it has completely changed my life for the better. I also play club chess often and am working towards a USCF ranking. My favorite aspects of these hobbies are all the amazing and inspiring people I have met along the way.
