Research interests include nanofabrication and manufacturing of nanomaterials, nanostructured alloys, and carbon nanofiber deposition and applications. Ongoing projects include the optimization and scale-up of catalytically synthesized, three-dimensional carbon components and the production of microporous metal foams using the Additive Expansion by the Reduction of Oxides (AERO) process (in collaboration with ARL). You can find out more about these topics by following the links below:
