I am a professor in Nuclear Engineering specializing in nuclear reactor thermal hydraulics, or the motion of fluid and energy in nuclear reactor systems. I work extensively on two-phase flows including interfacial area transport and bubble hydrodynamics and am branching out into exciting new areas such as phase change materials and passive safety systems. As an instructor, I am working to bring a more hands-on approach to the classroom through problem-based, team-based learning techniques and am working to develop a laboratory course on thermal-fluids with laboratory activities based on ongoing research.
