Afshin Shafa, PhD, SE Email Form

Senior Associate Engineer

When Afshin was in high school, two earthquakes occurred close to home. As he watched the rebuilding, he wondered if there was a better way to design buildings, and in turn save lives. Afshin is highly technical, and with a PhD in structural engineering he has continued his quest for knowledge in this field. He is hands-on, and has a unique ability to leverage technology to design the most efficient solution. Afshin enjoys collaborating with colleagues and clients to ensure the success of a project, and will work diligently to verify that the intent of the design is met.
