Experience

Jamie Hudson joined WJE in 2016, bringing with her three years of academic research experience in structural health monitoring and structural intervention in building conservation. Since joining WJE, Ms. Hudson has worked on a variety of projects involving the evaluation of existing structures. Her work has included condition assessments, load capacity evaluations, water leakage testing, and on-site inspections.

While an undergraduate student at Lehigh University, Ms. Hudson assisted with research developing a compressive sampling scheme for damage detection and localization for steel structures. Her graduate research at the Universities of Edinburgh and Glasgow involved the evaluation of the structural response of Gothic stone masonry vaults to differential settlement and the suitability of fiber reinforced polymers as an intervention technique.
