I recently completed my Ph.D. in the Maharbiz research group. My research primarily deals with the creation of organic/inorganic nanomachines. I received my B.S. degrees from Drexel University in both Mechanical Engineering and Electrical Engineering in 2001. Following graduation I worked as systems engineer for PSE&G Nuclear and then as missile systems engineer for Lockheed Martin. I've received numerous accolades in industry and academia including the Presidential Fellowship at the University of Michigan, the Hess Research Award, and the Ballistic Missile Systems Excellence Award from Admiral Kathleen Paige.
