Luis is currently working as a Structural Engineer at DLK Engineering. During his graduate studies, he worked on a project entitled "Evaluation of UAV as a Bridge Inspection Tool". His research was conducted to promote and develop new and innovative techniques to inspect bridges to decrease costs and risks involved with current inspection practices. He is a member of the SEI Student Initiatives, SEI Timber Bridges, SEI Business Practices Committees, and SEI Global Activities Division as the Liaison with the ASCE Colombia group. Additionally, Luis is involved with the Denver ASCE YMG where he serves as the Social Networking chair for the 2019-2020 year. At the ASCE national level, Luis helps in a variety of ways including mentoring, Career by Design topic moderator, and other miscellaneous activities. Also, he has been actively involved in EWB as he helps communities in Colorado, Guatemala, and Puerto Rico with limited resources to overcome daily challenges. His goal is to, as he advances in his professional career, increase his involvement with EWB, ASCE, and SEI to promote and assist communities, not only in the US but around the globe with their engineering challenges and provide them with a brighter future.
