New Post-Graduate Interns – Brijhette, Charles, and Hayley – join EERI team

EERI Internship

EERI selected three post-graduate interns from a strong pool of applicants for its successful internship program. The Institute would like to introduce Brijhette Farmer, Charles Mendoza, and Hayley Dickson:

Brijhette Farmer comes to EERI from SUNY at Buffalo, where she is pursuing degrees in architecture and structural and earthquake engineering. Alongside her work at EERI, Brijhette is working on her Master’s architectural thesis, entitled, “Life, Limb, and the Pursuit of Architecture,” which investigates poverty, aesthetics, and the design of transitional disaster housing by utilizing methodologies native to industrial engineering and product design. She is actively planning to pursue a PhD in structural and earthquake engineering.

Charles Mendoza is a recent Bachelor of Science graduate of UC Berkeley’s Civil Engineering program where he has raised earthquake engineering dialogue within the UC Berkeley undergraduate community. In the fall, Charles will return to UC Berkeley to pursue his Master of Science degree in structural engineering, with an emphasis in earthquake engineering and nonlinear dynamic response of structures.

Hayley Dickson graduated from Santa Clara University with a Bachelor of Science in civil engineering this past June. At Santa Clara, Hayley performed research in the development of engineered bamboo structural components and received a fellowship to intern abroad in Nicaragua with the Community Agroecology Network. This fall, Hayley returns to Santa Clara to complete her Master of Science degree in civil engineering with a structural emphasis.

The interns will work on projects of the Institute including the Concrete Coalition and World Housing Encyclopedia. Working on these projects offers the interns professional experience, exposure to the multidisciplinary aspects of earthquake engineering, and the opportunity to network with others in the profession. Their work benefits EERI’s mission to gather and disseminate information about earthquake risk reduction and to advocate for realistic measures to reduce the harmful effects of earthquakes.
