Current Research Interests

My research for my M.S. Civil Engineering, Major in Structural Engineering thesis is on quick structural evaluation of free-standing broadcast towers in the Philippines, in consideration of resonant wind effects and change in basic wind speeds.

I also have interest in dynamic response and mitigation, typhoon and earthquake engineering, full-scale measurements, structural investigation, structural design optimization, and computational methods (CFD, FEM).


Typhoon Engineering: We Need it More in the Philippines

If you don't believe that we need more typhoon engineers in the Philippines, check out the papers/presentations I presented at the previous conferences/conventions/workshops I attended, for more information about the very serious but very avoidable effects of typhoons in the Philippines, the number one most typhoon-prone country in the world. Bet you didn't know that, did you?
