What’s your favorite part of your job? I love working on projects that have a positive impact on people’s day-to-day lives. When I conduct a transportation-related study and later see the results of that study being implemented on the road, it provides a great sense of accomplishment.

What’s something you enjoy doing on your day off? I enjoy working around the house—doing DIY projects indoors or in the backyard. It gives me a great opportunity to reflect and even get in a light workout as well.

What’s something that people might be surprised to know about you? I’m a great ping pong player!
