I’m an Associate Professor of Mechanical Engineering at Oregon State University. I received my PhD in Mechanical Engineering from Case Western Reserve University in 2013, and degrees in Aerospace Engineering there before that.

My academic research focuses on computational modeling of combustion and other reacting fluid flows. I teach courses on gas dynamics, rockets, thermodynamics, and numerical methods. I advocate for and educate about open science. In addition to my academic writing, I’ve also written on various topics for the public.

Outside of work, I enjoy weightlifting and hiking the Pacific Northwest. I’m also a whisky connoisseur and amateur cocktail-maker. My library of books is one of my favorite things, and mostly contains science/speculative fiction and fantasy.
