About Me

I joined Virginia Tech in 2006 as an Associate Professor of Engineering Science and Mechanics (ESM). I also am Director of the Multi-Scale Transport in Environmental and Physiological Systems (MultiSTEPS) program at Virginia Tech (, an interdisciplinary consortium of faculty and students conducting research and training at the interface of the engineering and biological sciences. I obtained my Ph.D. (1998) and M.S. (1996) degrees in Theoretical and Applied Mechanics at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign (UIUC) after obtaining a B.S. (1993) degree in Mechanical Engineering and a B.S. (1993) degree in Mathematics from Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology. From 1998-2000 I worked as a Postdoctoral Research Associate at the Beckman Institute for Advanced Science & Technology at UIUC. I was an Assistant Professor of Mechanical Engineering at Vanderbilt University from 2000-2006. My research activities focus on fundamental problems in fluid transport, including mixing in small-scale systems and vortex dynamics in wakes, and I have a particular interest in problems with biological application.
