Signal processing on ambient vibrations in physical structures to detect and predict collapse in compromised structures.

From MATLAB simulations, to test burns, to designing and building a stand-alone, wireless sensor system complete with an ad-hoc mesh networking protocol, to physical case designs and building Windows software package.

Undergraduate Research Project with the De Pietro Fellowship at Harvey Mudd College, ran by Department Chair Ziyad Durón. (One of my most important and appreciated mentors)
