My research interests include multiphase flow, droplet dynamics, clean hydrogen energy systems, and decarbonization. I identify as an experimentalist in thermo-fluid sciences, engaging in both fundamental and applied research within the sphere of clean energy systems. As the director of the Multiscale Thermal Fluids Laboratory (MTFL) at WPI, we focus on addressing thermo-fluidic challenges inherent to energy systems. Within MTFL, we place a strong emphasis on inclusivity and diversity within the context of clean energy systems. The objectives of my research efforts include elevating the performance of carbon-free energy systems through underlying physics governing thermo-fluidic aspects. 

My emphasis on inclusivity and accessibility is also reflected in my teaching and educational services. My role as an educator extends beyond the dissemination of knowledge. Instead, I utilize this opportunity to empower each student to not only thrive but also embark on their professional journeys equipped with a robust skill set, marked by both critical and creative thinking. Courses that I teach include ME 514-Fluid Dynamics, ES 3004-Fluid Mechanics, ES 3001-Thermodynamics, ES 3003-Heat Transfer, and ME 4429-Thermofluid Application and Design.
