I am a Regents Professor of the University with a joint appointment in Mechanical and Energy Engineering and Materials Science and Engineering. I am also the Associate Dean of Undergraduate Studies. I did my Bachelors in Polymer Engineering, MS in Materials Engineering and Ph.D. in Mechanical Engineering. I work on engineering composites, foams and coatings for reliability and multifunctional performance. A thought I live by: Gender and cultural differences are positive contributions to everything we do. Rather than accept, question limits by yourself and others on your abilities.
