New CE Faculty Members for AY 2018-2019


Engr. Anya Catherine C. Arguelles obtained her Bachelor’s degree in Civil Engineering from the University of Santo Tomas and Master’s degree in Environmental Engineering from Korea University. She has three years of combined experience in the construction industry and has taught for a year in the Civil Engineering Department of the University of Santo Tomas. She’s been working as a civil and environmental field engineer since 2014 at Jacobs Project Philippines, Inc. (JACOBS) (formerly CH2M Hill Philippines, Inc.). She was heavily involved with a lot of Phase I and Phase II Environmental Site Assessment (ESA) projects and became involved with various environmental disposal and remediation projects. She currently continues to work as a sub-consultant of JACOBS for ongoing disposal and remediation projects that enhances her experience in soil and groundwater resource management.


Mr. Mendoza has seven years of work experience in structural engineering and consulting profession. He worked for top engineering consulting firms like AECOM Technology and Over Arup and Partners, and as the head of structural design department of Maynilad Water Services, Inc. He obtained his Doctor Engineering Degree major in Civil Engineering (Concrete Mechanics) from the Nagoya University, Japan and Master of Science in Structural Engineering from the Mapua Institute of Technology. His doctoral research focused on the development of a coupled Rigid Body Spring Model (RBSM) and nonlinear shell FEM for the nonlinear analysis of concrete-steel and concrete-FRP composites. His research interests include evaluation of post-peak behavior of concrete structures, geometrically nonlinear shell FEM, and behavior of steel and FRP-confined concrete members. He was a DOST scholar and placed 2nd in the November 2008 licensure examination for civil engineers. He was also awarded as the 3rd Most Outstanding Student of the Philippines in 2007 by the Philippine Institute of Civil Engineers (PICE). He is a member of the American Society of Civil Engineers-Structural Engineering Institute (ASCE-SEI), Association of Structural Engineers of the Philippines (ASEP), Japan Society for Computational Engineering and Science (JSCES), and the Japan Concrete Institute (JCI). He will be teaching undergraduate subjects in civil engineering such as Theory of Structures and Reinforced Concrete Design, and a graduate course on Nonlinear Analysis of Structures.


Dr. Krister Ian Daniel Z. Roquel belongs to the first batch of BS-MS in Civil Engineering graduates from De La Salle University, class of 2013. He worked as a Science Research Specialist and part-time Lecturer in the Civil Engineering Department of De La Salle University, before pursuing his Doctor of Philosophy Degree in Civil Engineering at the same Institution, on a scholarship under the Engineering Research and Development for Technology (ERDT) program of the Department of Science and Technology – Science Education Institute (DOST-SEI). He also went to study at the Transport Studies Unit of the School of Geography and the Environment, University of Oxford in the United Kingdom as a research exchange student. His research interests include travel demand modeling, discrete choice modeling, and transport economics.


Dr. Erica Elice S. Uy graduated from De La Salle University in 2011 with a degree on Bachelor of Science in Civil Engineering with specialization in Structural Engineering. She was granted a 2-year full scholarship by AUN/SEED-Net for her Master's Degree in Civil Engineering with specialization in Geotechnical Engineering at Chulalongkorn University, Bangkok from 2012 to 2014. Through the Engineering Research and Development for Technology (ERDT) Scholarship of the Department of Science and Technology (DOST), she was able to pursue her Doctor of Philosophy Degree in Civil Engineering with specialization in Geotechnical Engineering at De La Salle University.  She was also granted a Sandwich program from the ERDT Scholarship at Nagoya University, Nagoya, Japan. She is interested in soil testing, constitutive modelling and development of prototypes that apply image processing as a tool for non-contact measurement.
