Driven by my passion for community and a commitment to meaningful work, I use leadership, innovation, and collaboration to improve infrastructure project and public service delivery. For the past eight years, I have connected civil engineering and public policy through research and practice. In doing so, my work has identified and evaluated the impacts of using innovative contracting and financing strategies for infrastructure delivery. This is especially important as governments struggle to provide public services and are eager to try these new strategies. I address these challenges with an entrepreneurial spirit, drawing on my project experience in Argentina, Uganda, Mexico, China, and Nicaragua and industry experience in urban planning, transportation engineering, construction management, and public policy analysis. My research dives into the use of crowdfunding, public-private partnerships, and stakeholder management for projects and initiatives in the United States and abroad. As a result of my breadth of work, I have been invited globally to make presentations, won numerous fellowships and grants, and selected to be a participant in the UN's 2018 Innovation Lab. Iā€™m eager to learn about the communities and projects you work with, your interest in innovative public service delivery, and how we can collaborate.
