Aug 2017-present

Currently working as a senior engineer in civil and structure group. I’m designing the foundation and anchorage for the different oil and gas facilities such as pump, drain tank, compressor, horizontal and vertical vessel and designing the structural members for fin fan cooler and pipe support per CBC 2016, ASCE 7-10 and API 650. I also utilize HEC-RAS to evaluate the flood potential in the river and analyze the impact of flood on the gas pipeline. I also provide the solution to protect the gas pipeline against the intense flood.

Lamar University

Sep 2014- Aug 2017

worked as a teaching assistant and research assistant. I was TA for four Undergraduate Civil Engineering courses, including, Surveying, Hydrology, Models of Hydrological Systems and Statics. In addition, I was working on several sediment control research projects, projects funded by TxDOT,

Police, Engineering Department, Tehran, Iran

Oct 2011- Dec 2012

Designed concrete and steel buildings utilizing structural engineering software, such as, ETABS 2000 and SAFE 2000. I used AutoCAD to prepare shop drawing and as-built plans. During the construction phase, I provided solutions to various construction issues and responded to contractors' RFIs. Working as an assistant Project Manager, I completed many different tasks, including performing cost estimates and completing project scheduling for building and grading projects. In addition, I provided grading and drainage design, and hydrology and hydraulic analysis for small to mid-sized projects including the addition of a new jail and sports training center in the city of Arak, Iran.
