About Me

I graduated from Florida Institute of Technology with Bachelor of Science degree in Mechanical Engineering in 2013. My master's coursework emphasized in dynamic systems and research emphasized in engineering design, specifically on engineering change management through the utility of requirements in predicting and managing requirement changes. My Ph.D. coursework focuses on design and manufacturing with research emphasis on developing computational support for change propagation prediction using complex networks and machine learning data mining techniques. My research interests expand to product design and development, manufacturing, computational reasoning for complex systems, systems modeling and simulation, optimization, and data analysis. I am currently working as a Teaching and Research Assistant under supervision of Dr. Beshoy Morkos in SysTems Research on Intelligent Design and Engineering (STRIDE) lab at Florida Tech.



My Latest Research

I am currently working on the NSF grant project awarded to my academic advisor, Dr. Beshoy Morkos, for my Ph.D. research.It is a collaborative research between Florida Institute of Technology and Clemson University to explore the evolution of design requirements throughout the design process utilizing network models.
