Research Interests

Anita graduated from Cornell University in December 2020, majoring in civil engineering and minoring in applied mathematics. During her undergraduate studies, she fell in love with doing research after she joined her faculty advisor’s lab, which studied earthquake nucleation mechanisms. Between undergrad and grad school, she worked as a structural engineering intern at a small, sustainability-minded civil engineering B-Corp, Taitem Engineering, in Ithaca, NY. She did many design calculations and performed some life cycle assessments for past and ongoing projects.
