I am an Assistant Professor in the Nuclear Engineering Graduate Program housed within the Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering at The Ohio State University.

My research interests are in interdisciplinary research in the areas of particle transport and radiative transfer, with applications in atmospheric sciences, nuclear engineering, nuclear medicine and health physics, medical imaging, and computer graphics.
