Research Interests

My research projects aim to address issues of process safety through a combination of experimentation, phenomenological modeling, computational fluid dynamics modeling, and analytical tool development. The long term goal of my research program is to provide engineering methodologies for the enhancement of process safety. The primary motivation in my work is the protection of the most important element of any business - people.
