Employment History

  • Bridge Engineer for Nebraska Department of Transportation
    • MAY 2022 – CURRENT
    • Utilized preliminary site/roadway survey and inspection data to create a new bridge design including its superstructure and substructure elements as per AASHTO LRFD Bridge Design Spec. Provided structural specifications, estimating, quantity calculations, technical reports, and detailed engineering analyses of bridges and bridges components. Provided technical guidance to and coordinated between designers/drafters, project owners, construction crew, engineers, estimators, and other entities related to each project.
    • Utilized Bentley OpenBridge Designer, LEAP Concrete, LEAP Steel, MicroStation, RISA 3D
    • Bridge Load Rating – Internship for Nebraska Department of Transportation
      • JANUARY 2020 – MAY 2022
      • Performed and Quality Checked (QC) structural analysis of bridge systems and components using AASHTOWare BrR and prepared Load Rating Summary Sheets (LRSS). Bridge types include Simple and Continuous:
        • Prestressed (Double/Inverted Tee, I Beam, Channel, Planks, Box).
        • Reinforced Concrete (Slab, Planks, and Girders).
        • Steel Girder (Rolled and Plate).
        • Timber.
        • Structural Inspection – Internship for Collins Engineers, Inc. Denver, CO.
          • MAY 2021 – AUGUST 2021
          • Provided inspection services and reviewed testing for conformance to plans and specifications for all structures, roadway, and specialty items in accordance with the clients’ specifications, industry standards, and approved procedures namely the National Bridge Inspection Standards (NBIS). These services included evaluation of a given structure’s integrity utilizing testing material, equipment, and machinery as needed for each unique project and reporting of findings through formal reports with prompt communication of critical findings.
          • Structures Inspected and Reported: Bridges, culverts, traffic signals, and retaining/sound walls.

Research Experience

  • Undergraduate Research for University of Nebraska-Lincoln
    • JANUARY 2019 – JANUARY 2020
    • Built an artificial neural network to allow Nebraska Department of Transportation to quantify load rating of bridges using the bridge measurements only rather than performing diagnostics/load tests. Accumulated and organized bridge plans and measurements to create a database of bridges. Conducted Finite Element Analysis (FEA) and used the results in creation of the neural network through programming in MATLAB and Excel.
    • Utilized BDI (Bridge Diagnostic, Inc.), ANSYS (FEA), Microsoft Excel, and MATLAB


  • American Society of Civil Engineers at University of Nebraska-Lincoln
    • PRESIDENT - SPRING 2020 – SPRING 2022
    • Integrating with like-minded individuals to protect the public’s health, safety, and welfare by applying innovative, state-of-the-art practices and technologies.
    • Recruited, educated, and lead a team of students to annual Concrete Canoe competitions.
    • Hosted monthly meetings to allow students to learn from and network with engineers.
    • Complete Engineer Student Focus Group at University of Nebraska-Lincoln
      • FALL 2020 – SPRING 2022
      • Served in a board of select student leaders invited to discuss the future of College of Engineering’s effort to restructure and expand the Complete Engineer initiative.
      • This program is geared towards creating a clear and effective path for the upcoming classes of engineers.
      • Engineering Student Advisory Board at University of Nebraska-Lincoln
        • FALL 2019 – SPRING 2022
        • Demonstrated active servant leadership by connecting all students, faculty, and administration across the College of Engineering (COE) to enhance the student experience.
        • Allocated monies to Registered Student Organizations and Design Teams within COE.
        • Organized and assisted events that introduced engineering to K through 12th grade students.
