I'm a Ph.D. physicist and engineer doing creative work on hard problems.

During my Ph.D. work, I designed and built a one-of-a-kind laboratory experiment at the University of Maryland intended to give insight into the process of magnetic field generation in Earth's core. This experiment spins twenty tons of molten sodium metal and stainless steel at four revolutions per second. 

I'm now developing bio-inspired energy generation and propulsion systems as the Director of Product Development at Pliant Energy Systems in Brooklyn.
