Assistant Professor 05/2015 – present
Specializing in research of sustainable materials with an emphasis on the analysis of industrial processes, modeling, instrumentation, and material testing.
Postdoctoral Research Associate 08/2014 – 05/2015
Used Aspen Plus and CAPCOST software to evaluate mass and energy balances as well as economic analysis of industrial processes. Used a Fischer-Tropsch pilot plant reactor system to perform experiments that I designed as a graduate student.
Graduate Research Assistant 01/2009 – 08/2014
Used Aspen Plus and CAPCOST software to evaluate mass and energy balances as well as economic analysis of industrial processes. Designed a pilot scale reactor system using LabView to create the software needed for temperature, flow-rate control and monitoring of the pilot reactor system to research multiple catalysts.
