Nadi received his Bachelor’s in Civil Engineering from UC Irvine and his Master’s in Structural Engineering from UC Berkeley. Early in his academic career, he worked on many research projects focused on sustainable materials and earthquake engineering. As a graduate student, Nadi focused on refining his understanding of seismic loading and alternative and common construction materials. Understanding the different materials used in construction has allowed him to analyze various environmental impacts, and how they can be used to improve structures.
Outside of work, Nadi enjoys playing soccer, hiking, biking, and traveling the world.
