What I Do

I work as a Winter Maintenance Engineer at Wisconsin Department of Transportation.

I received my Ph.D. degree from the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering at the University of Wisconsin - Madison. My dissertation was related to increasing the efficiency of transportation infrastructure maintenance and maintenance management. I also minored in courses specifically focusing on Information System and System Analysis.

In the past decade and a half, I worked on numerous studies and research projects, many of which in collaboration with Wisconsin Department of Transportation. You can read the details about them here. The results of my work have been presented at regional, national, and international conferences, including the Transportation Research Board Annual Meeting. Some of them were published in the Transportation Research Record. You can look at the detailed list of my publications here.

As a graduate student, I assisted the Laboratory for Optical and Computational Instrumentation (LOCI) with the upgrade and development of LOCI website. Prior to that, I worked part-time as a Computer Tech Support at the R. M. Bock Laboratories at UW - Madison, the same position that I previously held at the Synchrotron Radiation Center for almost nine years.

Other Things That I Do

I am a fan of electronic gadgets and new technology and always follow the latest trends in computing as much as I can.
I am also a fan of music, particularly jazz, and used to play multiple instruments, including Trombone and Alto Saxophone
I volunteer at SSM Health St. Mary's Hospital in Madison, WI as a member of the Patient and Family Advisory Council.


I live with my family in Madison, Wisconsin. I have called Madison home since 1999 when I started my post-graduate education at UW Madison.
