I made the NDSU newsletter! Or at least, my research group did…This mainly includes work shown in our first paper, and I am still working with a wonderful lady on writing the second. Crossing my fingers, knocking on wood, and wishing on a fallen star that it goes well. Well, folks…here it is. I’m so proud of the work we have done and am so thankful for the lovely people in the Civil Engineering department that helped me get involved in research.
