Areas of Interest
Studies involving issues and concerns related to both architecture and civil engineering. The relationship between architecture and civil engineering has intrigued and therefore become a career emphasis. Specific topics of interest include rural architecture, bridges, and seismic design. These have led to research on covered bridge origins and design, four-square housing design and construction, and high-strength concrete column design.
