Selected Recent Projects:


Fast Track Ultrasonic Imaging of Concrete Bridge Decks (PI)

The objective of this study is to monitor and collect data about the health of our nation’s aging bridges simply by driving on them.


Structured Use of Metacognitive Activities in a Flipped Undergraduate Engineering Course to Enhance Learning and Professional Skill Development (PI)

The objective of this study is to to investigate the student learning outcomes when systematic metacognitive activities are used within a flipped undergraduate fluid mechanics course curriculum versus when they are not.


Controlling Liquid Wetting of Textured Surfaces via Ultrasound (co-PI)

The objective of this study is to investigate how ultrasound can be used to change the wetting state of a liquid on a surface based on the relationship between the size scale of the surface texture and the vibration frequency.

Funding agency: NSF
