I am currently a Senior Member of the Technical Staff at Sandia National Laboratories in Livermore, California. In conjunction, I am an Adjunct Research Professor in the department of Civil & Environmental Engineering at Carleton University, Ottawa, Canada. My research interests lie in the fields of uncertainty quantification and inverse problems in engineering. I received a Bachelor of Science, majoring in Microbiology and Immunology, and a Bachelor of Engineering, majoring in Electrical and Computer Engineering, from McGill University with distinction. I received a Master of Applied Science degree in Civil Engineering from Carleton University, Ottawa, Canada, in 2006. Recently, I received a PhD degree in Civil Engineering from Carleton University, Ottawa, Canada.

My Computer Engineering undergraduate background has benefited me in conducting interdisciplinary research with applications in mechanics through strong system analysis, probability theory, and parallel computing skills. My research has exploited state-of-the-art high-performance computing platforms to analyze complex dynamical systems. I held one major scholarship from the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada during each of my B.Eng., M.A.Sc. and Ph.D. studies. I also held an internship at the Department of National Defence (DND) of Canada during my Ph.D. studies under the auspice of the National Research Council's (NRC) Institute for Aerospace Research (IAR) working on a research project developing an in-house capability for military aircraft certification against dynamic instabilities based on Bayesian inference.

At Carleton University, I served as instructor on three occasions. I have instructed the course entitled "Mechanics of Solids II" for 3rd year undergraduate students in civil engineering in the winter semesters of 2011 and 2012 academic years. I also taught a course entitled "Numerical Methods" for undergraduate engineering students with enrolment composed of civil, environmental, mechanical, aerospace, computer and electrical engineering undergraduate students.
