|Brief Biography: I am an Assistant Professor in the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering at Norwich University. I teach introductory and advanced courses in Environmental Engineering as well as core Civil Engineering courses and labs.
I am also the Director of the upcoming Center for Global Resilience and Security at Norwich University, a research center focused on building resilient communities to combat climate related impacts in the areas of water, infrastructure, and energy.
My research interests are in green infrastructure, sustainable water resources management, and climate change related disaster resilience through engineering innovation. I have used grants through NSF’s EPSCoR program and from the USEPA to research, design, and model green stormwater infrastructure and innovative treatment of nutrients in stormwater and agricultural runoff.
I am also active in engineering education activities including service learning, K-12 STEM outreach and integrating research into undergraduate curriculum, and community engagement in water and climate initiatives.
My terminal degree is from Florida State University. I have previously served in engineering positions at the Florida Department of Environmental Protection and as Sustainability Manager for Environmental Management Center in India.
