I am a civil engineer qualified in the structural design and sustainable construction using eco-materials such as bamboo, wood, earth, and others with low environmental impact.

I have knowledge and experience in the application of structural engineering principles, structural engineering computer programs and building codes. I am highly motivated and willing to research and take on new challenges, such as the biomimetic and parametric design of organic structures.

On this website I present the projects in which I have participated as an engineer:
