Tell us a little about your research
My primary research looks at ways to better integrate and teach 3D printing technology in various education environments. I am currently working with 3rd and 4th grade students in Baltimore City. In addition to this, I am interested to learn about potentially positive outcomes associated with introducing this technology to diverse populations.

What do you like best about the HCC program at UMBC?
Our department has a strong sense of community. Faculty and students make efforts to connect with each other on a regular basis. While we all are competitive and strive to do high-quality, impactful research, we also support each other so that everyone can be successful.
