I am currently working on a Ph.D. in Mechanical Engineering at West Virginia University with a research focus in internal combustion engines. Before I started at Fairmont State full time I worked as an engineer in industry and was an adjunct faculty member. I graduated from West Virginia University with an M.S. in Mechanical Engineering in 2005. I also hold a B.S. in Civil Engineering Technology from Fairmont State University.
I enjoy the focus on teaching at Fairmont State University. I like to challenge students to view the world differently based on the concepts they have learned in the classroom.
