I am a Postdoctoral Associate at the Department of Civil Engineering of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, working with Prof. Pedro Reis.
I received my Ph.D. in Aeronautics from the Graduate Aerospace Laboratories at the California Institute of Technology (GALCIT), where my advisor was Prof. Sergio Pellegrino.
My research interests lie in the mechanics of materials and structures, with emphasis in fiber composites, lightweight structures, soft solids and stability.
