I greatly enjoy teaching and mentoring both at the undergraduate and graduate level. I teach courses in the field of Structural Engineering, particularly course related to theory, mechanics, and analysis of structures. To enhance the quality of my courses, I have pursued various activities through the following programs: Center for Learning and Teaching in Engineering (CRLT-E) Mavis Future Faculty Fellows (MF3) program Center for Teaching Excellence (CTE) American Society for Engineering Education (ASEE)
|Structural Dynamics (CEE 511) - University of Michigan||Jan. – May 2017|
Course Topics: Dynamic equilibrium of structures. Response of a single degree of freedom system to dynamic excitation: free vibration, harmonic loads, pulses and earthquakes. Response spectra. Response of multi-degree of freedom systems. Seismic behavior of buildings and the basis of seismic building codes.
|Structural Engineering (CEE 360) - University of Illinois - Course Website||Aug. – Dec. 2013|
Course Topics: Analysis, behavior, and design of trusses and framed structures under static loads; member forces in trusses, shear and moment diagrams, deflections, simple applications of the force method and slope-deflection; computer applications.
|Finite Element Methods (CEE 570) - as TA at University of Illinois||Jan. – May 2012|
Course Topics: Theory and application of the finite element method; stiffness matrices for triangular, quadrilateral, and isoparametric elements; two- and three-dimensional elements; algorithms necessary for the assembly and solution; direct stress and plate bending problems for static, nonlinear buckling and dynamic load conditions; displacement, hybrid, and mixed models together with their origin in variational methods.
|Design of Structural Systems (CEE 465) - as TA at University of Illinois||Aug. – Dec. 2010|
Course Topics: Examination of the whole structural design process including definition of functional requirements, selection of structural scheme, formulation of design criteria, preliminary and computer-aided proportioning, and analysis of response, cost, and value.
