My main research interests are in human factors, safety engineering and engineering education. During my graduate studies at Penn State, I am co-advised by both Dr. Scarlett Miller and Dr. Christopher McComb. I am a member of  two research groups: the Brite Lab and the THRED group.

 

Below is a summarized list of my publications and technical presentations.
