My research and teaching activities focus on the subject of the safety, health, economic, and environmental risks posed by engineered systems.
Specifically, my current research investigates the risks posed to people and the environment by emissions of ultrafine particles or nanoparticles and the evaluation of different mitigation strategies.
Relatedly, I employ and develop novel data mining and modeling methods that permit
a quantitative understanding of risk even with incomplete or otherwise non-
See the opportunities page for more information on on going research projects including ways for undergraduate and graduate students to get involved.
I teach courses in Safety Engineering (ENVSE 400), Engineering Risk Analysis (ENVSE 470), and Business Risk Management (EBF 304W), as well as a graduate course in machine learning methods (EGEE 597A).
