Silvia's Brainery:

Training, Software, & Consulting

Optimizing efficiency and effectiveness!
In the days of hard work, I do work that is hard!
Thank you for your continued support of my
oh-so-many initiatives!


If it can be programmed, I have done so!  I speak Italian, Spanish, English, Tcl/Tk, Excel/VBA, MSAccess/VBA, Python, R, & Matlab.

I am working on a variety of tools to support Performance-Based Design.





Looking for technical consulting on your project? If I can't provide the support myself, I will team up with just the right individuals.



I have started an on-line academy with the goal of building a community of experts sharing knowledge to achieve understanding.

I also have a popular YouTube Channel with free videos.

This initiative has become a great collaborative effort!!!! We have all types of training courses and our list of contributors is growing!  

Here are the overviews of some of the courses we offer:



Through the years I have developed several tools. Some, such as those done at the University, are for public access, while others were developed for use by clients. 

The most-widely used tool is the PEER Ground-Motion Database Portal:

This may be my favorite of my many video productions! Still, check out my channel for more-educational videos!
