CHRISTIAN BACKUS

Christian joined the Structures Department at Gibbs & Cox in May 2016. He currently supports a variety of tasks including US Navy combatants and amphibs. Christian graduated from Penn State with a BS in Mechanical Engineering and a minor in Engineering Mechanics with specific emphasis given to experimental stress analysis and nondestructive evaluation of flaws. While at Penn State, Christian played for the Men’s Rugby Team and he recently returned to PSU to play in the annual alumni game which serves as the first game of the fall season for current players. The match is full contact (in case anyone was wondering about that black eye he came back with…) and the alumni always win.

Outside of the office, Christian enjoys playing guitar and singing. He also likes to exercise regularly and occasionally tries to play tennis with his loving girlfriend, Helen. Originally from Massachusetts, Christian is looking forward to further exploring the NOVA and DC area and is excited to see what his future at Gibbs & Cox holds.
