I am originally from the University of Maryland. I have a particular interest in military operations planning and modeling, aircraft and UAv design, as well as helicopter aeromechanics. Outside of the classroom, my hobbies include rock climbing, running, and reading.

Research Interests

Exploration of concept of operations for unmanned combat aerial vehicles. Using game theory, worked to create a tool for commanders to determine the most robust strategy for a successful suppression of enemy air defense campaign against a near peer enemy.

Current research includes military operations planning and ballistic missile defense system (BMDS).
