My focus in civil engineering is on sustainable infrastructure and natural disaster remediation. My passion has taken me abroad several times including to Tamale, Ghana with Saha Global, Nairobi, Kenya with a social entrepreneurship class, Bududa, Uganda with the Iacocca Internship and Cebadilla, Nicaragua with Engineers Without Borders.
