Short Bio


 

I am an Assistant Professor of Mechanical Engineering. Prior to joining Cal State LA, I was working in the ATOMS Laboratory at the University of Toronto.


I'm interested in fluid mechanics, heat transfer, optimization, and their applications in renewable energy. With my students in the Aerodynamic Laboratory (AL), the AL group focuses on wind turbine aerodynamics and cooling of photovoltaic modules.


As a teacher-scholar, I am committed to fostering an inclusive environment which stimulates collaborative learning through my teaching, research, and service activities. I am particularly interested in evidence-based engineering educational practices, and am currently focused on instructional innovations,
