I am associate professor of chemical engineering at Marian University. I teach most of the chemical engineering curriculum and some core engineering courses. I am passionate about helping students develop strong engineering fundamentals and efficient problem solving skills. My research history is diverse having worked on monolayer coatings and surface analyzis as a PHD candidate and on computational tools ever since. My current focus is on using computational tools and molecular simulation to gain insight into engineering problems and their solutions. Some topics I have explored in the past include polymerization kinetics, water permeability across zeolite membranes, and absorption of carbon dioxide on polyamine molecules.
