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 engineering design, particle transport, and radiative transfer, with applications in mechanical engineering, atmospheric sciences, reactor physics, nuclear medicine and health physics, medical imaging, and computer graphics.
