What inspired you to become an engineer?
I am the first professional engineer (PE) in my family. I chose engineering because I wanted to design and build safe, durable, and sustainable structures. Being a licensed professional engineer legally allowed me to provide professional engineering services to the public and distinguished my work from other engineers. We all have an obligation to our society to perform our services with an acceptable standard of care while conforming to professional ethics, laws, and code of conduct in engineering.
What is something that most people don’t know about you?
I attended middle school in three different countries (Iran, Nepal, and India).
What’s the best advice you’ve received — so far?
Effective learning comes with a sense of struggle. If something is difficult for us and we are struggling with it, that means our knowledge is increasing and if we are not struggling with it, if it’s easy, it means we are probably not changing how much we know.
