Saul Garcia was an SCEC USE-IT intern in the Summer of 2009. Saul worked with the video development team that helped develop and test features added to the SCEC-VDO program. His Interest are structural mechanics, architecture, and 3-D modeling. During the SCEC internship, Saul used the SCEC-VDO platform to make 3-D videos of earthquake events for the public. Saul used the knowledge he gained at SCEC to further his interest and apply it to other 3-D modeling and analysis software. After SCEC, Saul was accepted to work at the Center for Embedded Network Sensing (CENS) as a research intern for two consecutive summers(2010 and 2011). At CENS, he worked with PhD students on the structural mechanics of reinforced concrete shear walls during earthquake events. Saul's internship experience has provided insight into the work conducted in order to provide solutions to problems and publish those results.
