Teaching Associate Professor
After recently completing my Ph.D. studying thin film etching in supercritical carbon dioxide at the University of Arizona, I could not be happier to be back at Mines teaching the very same classes I attended as a student here. My research interests lie in environmentally sustainable high-pressure processing techniques and surface chemistry of materials. Outside of teaching and research, I enjoy coordinating hands-on outreach activities for kids.
