My research and teaching activities are in the area of sustainable building design and building technology, with a special focus on the study of adaptive building enclosure systems. One of the goals of this research is to develop smart materials that can alter their thermal properties in response to changing outdoor conditions, in order to conserve energy and optimize building thermal comfort. This research entails the use of energy modeling tools, experimental investigations including synthesis of new materials, and the study of practical applications. ... View Profile

Associate Professor
Office: Kaven Hall 201
I enjoy teaching civil engineering fundamentals in 1000 and 2000-level courses, and then revisiting those fundamentals in upper level and graduate courses as a base for presenting advanced topics and fostering deeper learning. This emphasis on fundamentals can be challenging to undergraduates because they may not appreciate the relevance. Consequently, I integrate design projects into my undergraduate coursework to provide a context for learning and to emphasize my expectations for learning and actively applying the course material. ...

Teaching is a passion of mine because much of the power industry is based on experiential data that you can't find in textbooks. Our industries thrive when the collected experience of a workforce is passed down from one generation to the next and that is what I strive to teach in my classes. I have worked for over a decade in the power industry and have been very fortunate to experience a wide variety of work. My hope is that some of my knowledge and experience will help a young engineer build their professional credentials to help them excel at their chosen field. View Profile
