I am currently a Ph.D. candidate in civil engineering with a minor in resilient infrastructure systems. My Primary research project focuses on the development of Equivalent Single Axle Load (ESAL) factors as well as the development of traffic input data for Mechanistic-Empirical (ME) Pavement Design software using Weigh-in-Motion (WM) data for the Georgia Department of Transportation (GDOT).  

Research Focus

  • Development of ESAL Factor using WIM data
  • Soil Behavior
  • Soil Stabilization
  • Pavement Design Practice
  • Transportation Engineering 
  • Machine Learning
  • Remote Sensing
  • Deep Learning
