Bachelor of Science in Civil Engineering
Universidad Nacional de San Juan, San Juan, Argentina (UNSJ)
Investigations to improve seismic force-resisting systems through simulations and various visualization techniques.
Graduate Research Assistant
Department of Civil Engineering, University of Illinois
Design and execute small-scale testing to validate control algorithms derived to
simulate seismic force-resistance.
Contribute to multi-disciplinary project aimed at developing visualizations and

20XX - Present
Departamento de Ingeniería, UNSJ
Selected by the General Director of the City Planning Department of San Juan, to
participate in the structural analysis and seismic assessment of the Dr. Guillermo
Rawson Hospital, one of the largest construction projects to date in the most
hazardous seismic area in Argentina.
Collaborated with two other members of a team to carry out a nonlinear static
analysis of the structure – primary objective and main focus of the project – in
agreement with FEMA 356 Pre-standard for the Seismic Rehabilitation of buildings.
