Welcome to my page. While I work part-time as a researcher, I am developing a consulting and education business as a Structural & Earthquake Engineering Consultant. I have started Silvia's Brainery, an on-line educational-resource presence where you can access educational material as well as take courses in advanced topics to improve your professional development.
Contact me if you'd like to develop a course or workshop program for your team.
Contact me if you'd like to hire me to develop in-house tools focused on UX (User Experience), not just UI (User Interface)
If it can be programmed, I am in! 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: the very popular BraineryBytes.
Hire me to develop in-house tools!
WHAT PEOPLE SAY
"Thank you for being a generous resource this quarter. Your illustrative teaching and the applications you provided made the dynamics concepts easier to understand. In lecture, you often preceded the derivation steps with "Yay" -- a word that is the newest addition to our vocabulary banks and will forever be the way we approach dynamics and 2021!
Getting to learn from you was a dirac delta function -- small amount of time (quarter system) but so much impact! I look forward to continuing to learn from you, through your innovative YouTube videos." -- UCLA Student in Structural Dynamics
