About Me

Welcome!

My story is simple, I started out liking chemistry and then merged into engineering.  In 2008, I graduated with a Bachelors of Science degree in Chemical Engineering from the University of Akron.  This degree came with a minor in Chemistry and a Certificate in Polymer Science.  However, along the way I started working and studying in the bio fields.

Shortly after graduation and taking a summer off to relax, I began a PhD program in Chemical Engineering with a focus in BioProcess Engineering.  This past May, the PhD was finished with a successful dissertation on how fungal morphology and nutrient limitation can improve enzyme production and reduce manufacturing costs.

I have worked on enzyme production, fungal morphology, soy protein processing, algae oil production, biosurfactants, bioplastics, and a number of analytical techniques.  Checkout our group research group website at UAkron.edu.or my Research page to see some of my PhD work.

Free time… yes, there are a few hours every day left… look for the Projects page to see what occupies my free time…
