Nicole Martino

I graduated from the University of Rhode Island with a Master’s Degree in 2010 with a focus of promoting proper bridge rehabilitation through the use of non-destructive evaluation methods. During this time I was awarded a teaching assistantship which forced me to discover my joy for teaching. This lead me to the desire to continue my education.

At Northeastern University, I have been able to continue an investigation of bridge deterioration through non-destructive means. A particular research topic I am involved in which is of great interest to me is detecting corrosion with ground penetrating radar (GPR).
