Daniel passed the Fundamentals of Engineering exam in October 2013, and plans to sit for the PE exam as soon as he is eligible. 

During the summer of 2014 Daniel was an intern at Taylor Structural Engineers in Pittsburgh, Pa. During his time at TSE Daniel worked closely with multiple professional engineers having experience ranging from one to thirty years. Daniel designed buildings for both gravity and lateral loads, participated in site visits and site investigations, analyzed existing structures and prepared construction documents. In addition, he gained valuable experience using various design programs such as Tedds and Mathcad. 

Daniel began working as a research assistant in the Architectural Engineering department’s structures laboratory in July 2013 and has continued to do so through his remaining academic years. He was quickly given the lead role in the construction and implementation of a racking facility. This facility will be used to further research in seismic effects on light frame wall structures.

In May 2013 Daniel participated in a study abroad program where he studied at the Pantheon Institute in Rome, Italy. During his time abroad Daniel gained a deep appreciation for Italian architecture, studied graphic static methods of structural design, and immersed himself in Italian culture.
