Leveraging novel nanoscale heat transfer and energy conversion phenomena for waste-heat recovery and thermal detectors
Intellectually inquisitive, skilled experimental research scientist with a proven track record of scholarly productivity and an eye to see through the tough problems. My research focuses on leveraging novel nanoscale heat transfer and energy conversion phenomena to improve waste heat recovery strategies like thermoelectrics and calorics, and to improve thermal management and detection. My expertise is in building, operating and fundamentally improving ultra-high resolution thermal characterization techniques. I'm currently in a National Research Council postdoctoral fellowship at the US Army Research Laboratory, where I do this kind of characterization. I serve as the co-chair of the ARL Postdoc Association, an organization dedicated to providing opportunities and resources, and advocating for our fellow ARL postdocs.
