Dan Curcio, '07
Electrical and Computer Engineering
ASIC Product Test Engineer, Qualcomm

I have spent the last two and a half years working at Qualcomm. My group does testing of mobile phone ASIC chipsets. My role is to automate and troubleshoot testing at the system level. I have learned so much since I have started working here. Working at Qualcomm is great! I my spare time I also enjoy photography and hiking.

Daniel Whisler, '07
Structural Engineering
Grad student, UCSD Structural Engineering

Daniel graduated in 2007 with his B.S. in structural engineering and got accepted into the M.S./B.S. program. He spent quite a bit of time being a T.A.-- 6 quarters, plus 1 summer session to be exact, and thoroughly enjoyed helping future engineers find their path. He completed his M.S. in 2009 in low velocity, blunt impact composite research for the FAA and the Boeing 787 Dreamliner. And with an exciting investigation in vehicle armor design, he looks forward to a PhD in the near future! When not in the lab, you can usually find him traveling with his family or working on cars in the garage.

Michele Barbato, '07
Structural Engineering
Assistant Professor, Louisiana State University and A&M College

Dr. Michele Barbato, assistant professor in structures and mechanics of the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering at Louisiana State university and A&M College, with co-authors Drs. Alessandro Zona and Joel P. Conte, received the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) 2009 Moisseiff Award for the paper "Nonlinear Seismic Response Analysis of Steel-Concrete Composite Frames", (Journal of Structural Engineering ASCE, 134(6):986-997, June 2008), as an "important contribution to the knowledge of the dynamic response of composite steel-concrete structures." The Moisseiff Award is one of the highest profession-wide recognition of a paper of merit published by ASCE "dealing with the broad field of structural engineering including applied mechanics, theoretical analysis or constructive improvement of engineering structures of any structural material." The award was established in 1947 in recognition of the accomplishments of Leon S. Moisseiff, M. ASCE, a notable contributor to the science and art of structural engineering. Barbato was presented the award at the Structures Congress 2009 in Austin, TX.
