2020 – 2022Master’s Degree in Civil and Architectural Engineering Aarhus University - Aarhus, Denmark ● Average grade: 11.78
2014 - 2019Bachelor of Science in Engineering British Columbia Institute of Technology - Vancouver, Canada ● Average grade: 83%
2019Research Work Research Paper on Comparison of Analysis Approaches for Seismically Isolated Building In the 4th year of my study at BCIT, I was involved in a research project together with one of my professors, Kian Karimi, Ph.D., P.Eng., P.E. The objective of the research was to determine whether a static procedure (such as the Equivalent Lateral Force Method) can produce accurate results and be used for the preliminary design of base isolation systems. We used SAP2000 for modeling our structure and conducting a Time-History Analysis. The research was accepted and published to the 17th World Conference on Earthquake Engineering.
