Greetings, and welcome to my home on the internet! This website is a space for me to share the things which matter most to me – namely, my research, flying, obscure space & aviation history, and and general adventuring. Before you launch back into the wild blue yonder, please feel free to have a gander and learn about me and some of my work.
I am an engineer, an aviator, and above all else, a hopeless nerd – more than anything, I’m driven by my occasionally-obsessive thirst for knowledge and my insatiable love of flight and adventure.
A proud alumnus of Lehigh University’s Deparment of Mechanical Engineering and Mechanics (B.S.) and Purdue University’s School of Aeronautics and Astronautics (M.S., Ph.D.), I work at the fascinating nexus of science, technology, and policy known as hypersonic flight. It’s an exciting time to be an aerospace engineer and I am always happy to talk about my work when I can – my interests include high-speed aerodynamics, vehicle concept development, computational mechanics, and propulsion systems. Outside of work, I enjoy flying vintage aircraft, playing classical piano, baking elaborate concoctions, and seeing the world, one adventure at a time.
