Research Interests
1) With support from PEO IWS, I am in the process of standing up a railgun lab that aligns with the current efforts at Dahlgren. The lab will be addressing basic and applied research on materials science, pulse power, and field enhancement designs.
2) I am also conducting research on MEMB-based devices for energy harvesting using thermal creep.
