Dr. Rose specializes in geotechnical and structural engineering. She has particular expertise in centrifuge model design and testing, analyzing the behavior of utility systems in granular soils, and developing frameworks for quantifying geotechnical demands on buried pipelines aimed towards industry-use. Dr. Rose has experience with experimental modeling and testing, data acquisition and processing, structural mechanics, analysis, dynamics, and design, soil mechanics and analysis, analytical methods, and disaster reconnaissance.

During her PhD at the University of Colorado Boulder, Dr. Rose designed and tested centrifuge pipe-pull experiments to simulate buried pipelines subject to axial displacements. Her PhD evaluated the influence of boundary conditions in centrifuge test design, quantified the passive resistance accumulated at individual pipeline connections, and established an analytical method for calculating system-level geotechnical demands along pipelines. During her graduate studies, she was a teaching assistant for undergraduate engineering courses including structural analysis and statistics where she led office hours and course lectures. She was an invited technical speaker at the UESI Pipelines 2022 Conference for the Seismic Design of Water and Waster Pipelines Committee and has presented her experimental work for the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) and Earthquake Engineering Research Institute (EERI).

Dr. Rose has also worked as a structural intern for multiple design firms in Colorado and California. She conducted field reconnaissance following the 2021 Marshall Fires, where she utilized LiDAR sensing and visual inspection techniques, and miniature cone-penetrometer testing (CPT) in a geotechnical centrifuge. She also has numerous years of experience teaching martial arts and other fitness-related individual and group classes.
