I am an Electronics Engineer in the Autonomous Controls branch in the Power and Control division of the Aerospace Systems Directorate in the Air Force Research Laboratory. I received my PhD in Electrical Engineering from the Air Force Institute of Technology in 2021, my MS in Electrical Engineering from the University of Texas at Arlington in 2011, and my BS in Mechanical Engineering from Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology in 2009. I am currently a senior member of the American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics (AIAA) and a senior member of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE). I am a member of the Intelligent Systems Technical Committee (ISTC) in the AIAA and I am an active member of both the Robotics and Automation Society (RAS) and the Controls Systems Society (CSS) in the IEEE. My research interests lie in automation and control of aerospace systems for defense applications.

The AIAA Science and Technology Forum and Exposition (AIAA SciTech Forum) program covers the science, technologies, and policies that are shaping the future of aerospace. The forum is the largest event for aerospace research, development, and technology in the world—bringing together 11 individual technical disciplines. AIAA SciTech Forum delegates include over 1,500 undergraduate and graduate students, and aerospace professionals from nearly 1,000 corporate, academic, and government institutions in 43 countries.
The AIAA Defense and Security Forum (AIAA DEFENSE Forum) is a Secret/NOFORN event providing a venue for leaders from government, military, industry, and academia to advance and accelerate innovation. The forum’s program consists of two main parts: a technical program offering a deep analysis on research and technologies geared to solve specific problems, and high-level plenary sessions tackling the most pressing issues impacting the future of national security.
The Air Force Research Laboratory is hosting a hybrid virtual colloquium in the area of intelligent systems and autonomy. This event is designed to gather academics and government parters to discuss interesting and novel work performed in partnership by young professionals over the 2023 summer at Wright-Paterson AFB.
