I have 26 publications and much more to come.
I specialize in Finite Elements (FE)/Non-Contact Underwater Explosion (NCUE)/Dynamic Design Analysis Method(DDAM)-Shock/Transient-Shock/Vibration. Non-linear plasticity and contact analysis.
On-Site Structural Inspection
I have experience with on-site inspection of aircraft handling tracks on the US Zumwalt DDG1000 Destroyer and Italian Frigate
I also specialize in Helicopter/Surface Ship Interface Dynamics and Vibration.

Curtiss-wright, Indal technologies
I currently work for Curtiss-Wright. I design/calculate/inspect aircraft handling systems, hangar doors and sonar handling systems for both surface ships and submarines. I love what I do.
Doctor of philosophy in aerospace engineering
I studied Non-Destructive Testing; Structural Health Monitoring; Finite Element Analysis; Vibrations & Aero-elasticity; Engineering Composite Material; Cracked wings; Solid Mechanics. A new Dynamic Finite Cracked Element (DFCE)..
Ph.d research and Project work abroad
Buckling analysis was performed on membrane anisotropic composite plates that were proposed for the joint strike fighter using Patran/Nastran.
