I attended Penn State in 2010 majoring with a B.S. degree in Chemical Engineering and minor in Environmental Engineering. After completing a co-op assignment at a chemical manufacturing facility, I elected to pursue a research role with PPG in Pittsburgh, PA where I have worked for the last 4 years. While at PPG, I have focused on the science of paint application to drive fundamental understanding of the relationships between paint properties and application process which impact coating performance. I am an outdoor enthusiast and spend much of my free time hunting, fishing and managing property.
