About Me

I hold a BS degree in mechanical engineering and PhD in mechanical and aerospace engineering from the University of Virginia, as well as a diploma from the von Karman Institute for Fluid Dynamics. I had a post-Doctoral appointment at UC Davis from 2003-2005. Starting in September, 2005, I became part of the faculty of the Kate Gleason College of Engineering at RIT and in 2016 I became the Department Head of Biomedical Engineering, a young and exciting program at RIT.

My research and expertise deals with the application methods in experimental and computational fluid mechanics to a range of applied and biological flows. This includes collaborations with biologists, medical doctors, and industry partners. I have successfully continued collaborations formed prior to RIT and have contributed to new projects that involve the application of engineering methods to complex biological systems. This has led to successful funded research programs through government and industry partners that have supported many undergraduate and Master's level students.

In addition to teaching courses related to fluid mechanics and medical device design, I'm active in guiding multi-disciplinary senior design teams.
