"I have more than 10 years experience studying and working in the areas of thermal/fluids and energy conversion. I am currently an Assistant Professor in mechanical engineering."
"I joined the ME Department in Fall 2017. I enjoy the collaborative environment among faculty and interacting and working with students."
"I have taught graduate and undergraduate courses in fundamental engineering analysis and core courses in thermodynamics and heat transfer. I actively engage all students to ask questions during lectures and encourages students to attend my office hours. My research group currently has one postdoctoral research associate, three on-campus PhD students, one master student and three undergraduate researchers."
"I serve as a committee member in multiple departmental committees, am the Faculty Advisor of the ASME Student Chapter at MSU, and serve as conference track/session chairs in multiple ASME/ASTFE conferences."
"I study fluid flow and heat and mass transfer in microscale materials/structures and macroscale chemical reactors. Current work in my group includes solar reactor design, modeling and testing for solar thermal energy storage, multiscale modeling of solidification and additive manufacturing processes. I has developed a lattice Boltzmann method (LBM)-based framework for transport phenomena simulations. I lead the Thermal Fluids & Energy Conversion Group at MSU and my group uses MSU’s HPC resources."
