Experience

-CEO and President of MMD Consulting Engineers, 1998 - present
-Participated in structural design and review of many projects including bridges, airports, buildings, towers, antennas, platforms and shoring systems. Sample projects in Chicago area:

-Curved Girder Bridge on I-294 over I-80, Kankakee Bridge over I-57, Wabash Avenue Bridge, Army Trail Road Bridge on N.W. Tollway among many other bridges

-Participated in correcting Chicago Building Code for porch design and temporary shoring systems
-Evaluated 2007 Minnesota bridge collapse and provided report to WGN TV news in Chicago
-Evaluated Ghandhar Aqueduct in Dera Esmail Khan, Pakistan (one of the largest aqueducts in the world, carries 2 levels of water and 1 level of traffic). This evaluation was performed on
behalf of the World Bank. Provided a report on deficiencies of this new built aqueduct 
-Utilized advanced surveying techniques including GPS, Laser, and Robotic systems to perform land surveying including Plat of Survey, Alta Survey, Subdivision Survey, Dedication Survey, and Consolidation Survey for more than 5000 surveying projects in Chicago area 
-Instructed University courses at IIT (Illinois Institute of Technology) including Bridge Design CAE 408, and Surveying CAE 305
-Worked with Chastain & Associates (1994-99)
-Worked on bridge design, buildings, and structural work on both the Midway and O’Hare airports in Chicago 
-Researched on submarine body, bucking, and post buckling behavior of stiffened composite shell. This research was funded by US Navy and NCCMR (National Center for Composite Material Research Lab) at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign
