Graduate Research and Teaching Assistant at Syracuse University (2014 - Present)

• Designing a complete prestressed box girder bridge including both superstructure and substructure based on AASHTO LRFD Bridge Design Specifications using SAP2000 and CSiBridge software package. Full detailed report and drawings developed by successful teamwork as a final project for prestressed concrete design course.
• Performing comprehensive nonlinear finite element analysis on prestressed cantilever concrete beam in four different conditions, ordinary reinforced, pre-tensioned, post-tensioned bonded and unbonded concrete. Modeling and analysis have been done using available computer software, Abaqus.
• Developing an innovating technique to seismically assess and rehabilitation of an adobe structure by proposing a method of strengthening by synthetic nylons material using nonlinear finite element analysis based on International Building Code (IBC).
• Leading and mentoring more than 100 graduate and undergraduate students for Dynamic of Structures, Engineering Materials, Surveying and Building Information Modeling (BIM), Finite Element Analysis and Civil Engineering Capstone Project courses.

Zaman Tehran Consulting Engineers (2009 – 2013)

• Designing and analysis of 50k ft2 factory and sport complex structures based on the ASCE7 and the AISC for high seismic risk region. As a structural engineer in this project I was involved in designing, drafting, material take off, fabricating and erecting the main Mahabad and Abhar University structures.
• Performing analysis, material take off and fabricating the Nastran Electric 65k ft2 oil refinery heavy industrial structures.
• Structural design and analysis of the 55k ft2 Dolphin Hotel residential/commercial structure in Kish Island. My role as structural and construction engineer included designing the primary structure, foundation and project supervision during fabrication and erection of a 10 story steel structure.
• Prepared structural detail design, calculation notes, project specification, periodic reports for projects, and basic design reports for low-rise and mid-rise residential structures.
