I am a PhD Candidate in the Faculty of Engineering and Applied Science at Memorial University of Newfoundland. I earned my MSc. in Engineering from Purdue University, Lafayette, IN and a BEng in Metallurgy from Dalhousie University, Halifax, NS. I earned my professional engineer designation with Professional Engineers Ontario (PEO). I have practised engineering for over 10 years with General Motors of Canada Ltd, New Brunswick Research and Productivity Council, and The Iron Ore Company of Canada.

My research interests include Corrosion and Asset Integrity modelling of process components in marine environments. This includes both field and laboratory experimentation and development of asset integrity models to improve safety and reduce operating costs.

Along with my research, I am a sessional faculty member and keen to contribute to enhancing engineering education. I am interested in the application of student centered learning techniques and the inclusion of service learning opportunities in engineering education.
