Master of Science in Chemical Engineering, completed degree while working full-time.

▪ Research experience in the characterization of both wood-polymer composites and ceramic thin films
▪ Organized, detail-oriented and methodical; trustworthy and positive-minded
▪ Native of New England, currently living in the South East, but looking to relocate to the Boston, MA area

Master of Science
Chemical Engineering
University of Tennessee, Knoxville
▪ Evaluated novel radiation-curable resins as an alternative to heat-cured adhesives for application in wood composites; characterized curing of new composites through mechanical testing and infrared spectroscopy; determined feasibility and optimization for industry use; authored papers submitted for publication.

Bachelor of Science
Chemical Engineering
University of Rhode Island
▪ Assisted a Masters candidate in the testing of ceramic coatings and intermediate bond coats for use in thin film sensors by thermally fatiguing instrumented and non-instrumented samples. Contributed research to papers submitted for publication.
▪ Led research in exploring the use of laser welding as a means of lead wire attachment to sputtered thin film sensors, optimizing welding parameters to successfully attach the lead wires without damaging the film.
