Biography

The College of Engineering: Integrative Systems + Design
Assistant Research Scientist, Mechanical Engineering

Currently, I am working as a Research Scientist in the Mechanical Engineering deptartment at the University of Michigan.

I received my Ph.D. in 2010, MS in 2006 and BS in Electrical Engineering in 2004 at the University of Michigan.

My hobbies include working on antique cars, building furniture, snowboarding, and mountain biking. I am working on a restoration project with my dad; it’s actually his first car, a 1960 Triumph TR3. We also co-own a 1968 Jaguar E-type.
