I am an assistant professor in the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering at Princeton University. In the lab, I create optical metamaterials and designs for mapping and mitigating heat in a warming world, and evaluate and model their impact on our environment. As a scientist and engineer, I focus on developing novel but inexpensive technologies, which can be adopted by industries and startups to address critical needs in resource-poor communities.

What will students be able to take away from your classes?

The goal of my course is to train students on the fundamental mathematical skills needed for advanced courses in Princeton SEAS. My course will present the fundamentals of multivariable calculus from an engineering perspective, using examples from all 6 engineering departments.

What are your responsibilities at the Keller Center?

I teach the EGR 156: Foundations of Engineering - Multivariable Calculus class.

What do you appreciate most about the Keller Center?

The Keller Center's classes and co-curricular activities are fantastic opportunities for students to find the support and learn the skills they need to benefit society through innovation and entrepreneurship.
