My technical expertise lies at the intersection of combustion and nanoparticles. My current research focus is on combustion synthesis and nanocatalytic combustion. I am equally passionate about education and have developed a number of successful apps. I enjoy teaching Thermal-Fluid Science, Combustion, and Nanotechnology courses along with lower-level engineering courses to impart basic engineering skills. My interest in graphic design has allowed me to produce educational videos, design app interfaces, and prepare compelling presentations to augment my teaching. These interests have naturally lead to online delivery and related learning experiences.
