I research the micro-mechanical properties of irradiated SiC/SiC composites for advanced reactor applications; applying SEM/FIB, AFM, Xray tomography, nano-indentation, and in situ testing techniques to connect constituent properties to bulk composite behavior. I graduated from Washington State University in May 2015 with a B.S. in Materials Science and Engineering, GO COUGS. Also go Bears. Outside of research I spend time traveling and snowboarding.
