Title: Assistant Professor
College: Engineering
School / Department: Mechanical Engineering
Mentoring Philosophy:

When it comes to choosing a research topic, we have been always inspired by novelty, room for exploration and new venues of application, as well as personal enthusiasm. Our lab not shy away from delving into new projects and collaborating with researchers in disparate fields. We work on a combination of basic and applied projects targeted towards answering big questions and addressing the most pressing technological gaps. We believe that diversity, not only in skills, expertise, and academic background, but also in life experiences can ensure the prosperity of our lab, and we commit to that in recruiting our lab members. Moreover, our lab is managed in a way that inspires lab members to improve their scientific communication skills by leading their own projects as well as being involve in others'. Moreover, as a mentor, I continue teaching and learning to keep my group and myself at the forefront of scientific discovery.
