Brief Bio

I am an Associate Professor with tenure in the Department of Mechanical Engineering at SD Mines.  I joined SD Mines as an Assistant Professor in August 2011. Before joining SD Mines, I was a postdoctoral researcher at Division of Applied Mathematics at Brown University. I obtained my Ph.D. in Mechanical Engineering from University of Toronto (Toronto, Canada).
