Research InterestsChemically reactive multiphase flows, Energy systems, energy storage, Second Law applications to thermal / fluids, Energy efficiency, process integration
I studied at the University of Ontario Institute of Technology and obtained a BEng in Energy Systems Engineering (2008). My MASc thesis (2009) in Mechanical Engineering, involved the transient behaviour of wind turbines (Thermofluids and Microfluidics Laboratory), and my PhD thesis (2012) in Mechanical Engineering, focused on physiochemical characterization, multiphase flow and heat transfer for thermochemical energy conversion and storage (Clean Energy Research Laboratory). Before joining Memorial University, I investigated sustainable energy systems for large urban areas by examining the effects of different socioeconomic development pathways on resource demands and infrastructure needs.
During my research, I work closely with other major energy research institutions, including Nalcor, Statoil, Atomic Energy of Canada Limited, Argonne National Laboratory, Global Cities Indicators Facility and other research universities. I am a member of the American Institute for Aeronautics and Astronautics (AIAA) and the Canadian Society for Mechanical Engineering (CSME).
