Russell has a diverse range of experience including new design, performance-based design, forensic investigation, and construction engineering. Russell has worked on many adaptive reuse projects including the Lane Building, a 12 story non-ductile concrete building in downtown LA that was one of the first buildings to meet the City of Los Angeles’s Mandatory Retrofit Ordinance. Russell is active in professional organizations at the local and national level through his work with the SEAOSC EBC and ASCE 41 committees.


    Mohammad has more than 10 years of industry experience as a structural and wind engineer. He holds a PhD in Structural and Wind Engineering from Florida International University (FIU). He was a member of the research team at FIU Wall of Wind, an NSF Natural Hazards Engineering Research Infrastructure (NHERI) wind tunnel where he worked on multitude of research projects on the effect of extreme wind loads on buildings and hazard mitigation, leading to recommendations for the enhancement of building standards, innovative wind load mitigation approaches, and production of data to update hurricane loss models.

    With Walker Consultants as a Forensic and Restoration project engineer, he has been extensively involved in a wide range of projects on building damage investigations caused by natural and human-made hazards, structural condition assessments and repairs, design and engineering evaluations.

    Mohammad has been on several damage reconnaissance missions after major extreme wind events including post-event damage assessment of building and structures impacted by 2017 Hurricane Irma in Florida Keys and March 2020 Nashville Tornado.

    Jeffrey Tarbell is a Senior Structural Engineer at Revamp Engineering, Inc. with over 18 years of experience in the structural engineering profession. He has worked on a variety of project types in the education, medical, commercial, industrial, retail, amusement, and utility-scale solar markets.

    Rachelle is a project engineer and the Director of Sustainability at Glotman Simpson. A licensed engineer with 7 years of structural engineering experience in the Southern California area, she’s had the opportunity to work on a variety of structures, including: K-12, higher education, multi-family residential, mixed used development and high-rise construction. She is the Chair for the SEAOSC Sustainability Design Committee, Co-Lead for CLF-LA and a member of the AIA embodied carbon working group. She’s worked with jurisdictions and policymakers to help write local embodied carbon reach codes. Throughout her experience, participation in the SE 2050 program, and the passage of landmark embodied carbon policy, the design of low-carbon structure and the implementation of more sustainable materials has become an increasingly important design consideration. Her work on 843 N Spring Street, one of the first and largest mass timber buildings in Los Angeles and Park Habitat, a sustainability-focused tower in San Jose have highlighted the importance of minimizing embodied carbon and the strategic role structural engineers play in realizing our collective net-zero objectives.


    Bernard earned his B.S. in Civil Engineering from Cal Poly Pomona in 2000 where he went to school on an Air Force ROTC Scholarship.
