I am a lecturer in Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.


In the last few years I've been a:

I've also been heavily involved with teaching and course development with the Office of Engineering Outreach Programs here at MIT where I've taught courses and seminars for:

In the summers I also teach calculus at the high school level through the Noonan Scholars Program.


A lot of my past work/research involved the intersection of biology/neuroscience with EECS, with a focus on automation and control. More recently, I've focused more on just the instrumentation side. I also do a lot of teaching at the high school and college level and approach that as a research project as well (since the state of education is far from perfect) so do a lot of development/research into novel ways to improve student learning (particularly in STEM topics) for this age group.

Current Projects

Some of my current projects:

If you're interested in research projects along these lines, get in contact with me. I currently (mid-late-ish 2017) have a few other projects running at various stages that would serve as good UROPs and/or M.Eng Theses

Selected Publications and Papers:


I grew up south of Pittsburgh and attended the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor for my undergrad (EECS) from 2004 to 2008. I then moved to Cambridge, MA for my Masters and PhD in EECS from MIT, which I got in 2010 and 2014, respectively.
