Personal profile

Research interests

My interests lie at the intersection of fluid-thermal sciences and chemistry with a focus on thermal or thermochemical fuel/power production, conversion, or storage from renewable, traditional, or hybridized energy sources. With the demand for energy and the need to develop more environmentally friendly energy sources only increasing, there are near endless opportunities for new paths of research in this realm.
