is a research assistant professor in the Department of Materials Science and Engineering at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville.
He received his PhD in mathematical sciences from New Jersey Institute of Technology in 2015, after which he began his current position at the University of Tennessee.
His research interests include modelling, and developing computational tools to study, nano-scale phenomena. At the University of Tennessee, he continues development of the EnvizION code for the simulation of focused ion beam processing, working with Dr. Philip Rack. Other research interests include computational fluid dynamics, where he has studied numerical simulation of surface instability and dewetting of nanoscale liquid metallic films, and which was the topic of his PhD thesis.
