Professional Interests

Luis W Chavez Quiroz is currently pursuing his Master's Degree in Civil and Environmental Engineering with a focus in structural mechanics at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. Researching under the infrastructure group at RailTEC, Luis's interests include mechanical analysis of track superstructure, design of fastening systems, and optimizing track infrastructure. Academically Luis's interests include structural engineering and mechanics, and in particular using finite element analysis (FEA) for structural analysis. In his free time he enjoys being active with frequent gym visits, playing pick up games of frisbee, soccer, or basketball, and is an avid fan of horror stories.
