I am an Assistant Professor of Environmental Engineering at the University of Texas San Antonio. My research focuses on air quality and emissions from the full energy life cycle. Much of my work is computational, but I also conduct field measurement as well. 

I was previously an environmental engineer at the US EPA in the Office of Research and Development in North Carolina. I earned a PhD in Environmental Engineering from CU Boulder under Daven Henze and Jana Milford as part of the Collaborative for Air Quality Research.

Energy and the urban environment are significant factors contributing to the well being of humanity, and I research that intersection. I consider energy broadly, investigating the effect of changes in electricity generation as well as end uses such as transportation choices,  household efficiency measures, and consumer demand. I model the emissions to air of criteria pollutants and greenhouse gases as well as the atmospheric chemistry and transport of pollution. This air quality information informs the evaluation of human health benefits of energy choices.
