Aerospace Engineer | Educator | Technical Consultant

Welcome to my website! It is truly an exciting time to be in aerospace as we look to address issues related to traffic congestion in major cities and transit hubs around the world. Despite electric aircraft appearing to be the answer to many shortcomings of commuter travel, their integration into existing networks is contingent upon their seamless (and quiet) operation. My research which focuses on various aspects of sustainable aviation strives to make this a reality!
