I completed my bachelor’s and master’s degree at Illinois Institute of Technology. During my time there I took part in various interprofessional projects. Motivated by the global crisis of malnutrition, I was involved in the development of a pilot scale, three-phase reactor to accelerate the growth of microgreens with Dr. Fouad Teymour. Upon graduation, I joined the US EPA and spent much of my time conducting various facility inspections and researching and modeling particulate matter emissions from the metallurgical industry. Hoping to contribute to solving some of society’s energy and environmental problems, I joined CMU’s PhD program to gain the skills and mindset necessary to accomplish such feats.

Outside of work I enjoy spending time with family and friends. I am extremely competitive when it comes to sports and board games – my favorites being volleyball and Settlers of Catan. My wife and I love exploring cities, parks, and new food places.
