Associate Professor, MSU, 2009-present
Ph.D. University of Pittsburgh, 2004.
My research interests lie in the general area of complex systems. More specifically, I work on problems of self-organization in fluid mechanics and pattern formation in fluid structure intearction. I am the director of the Complex Fluids Laboratory at Montclair State University where we conduct experiments as well do theoretical work. In recent years, with collaborators across the country, I have also started to work on problems in biophysics concerning the dynamics of amyloid-beta protein aggregation. I am generally interested in the mechanics and the thermodynamics of all of these problems. In addition, I am also collaborating with MSU education researchers on issues surrounding math and science education with a focus on making 'creativity' a central theme of our curriculum.
