Ongoing Work

My current work combines elements of materials science, additive manufacturing, and controls/ mechatronics. In conjunction with Sandia National Labs, I aim to create a new class of novel inductors and related passive devices from nanomaterial composites. The nanomaterials are specially formulated to maintain magnetic properties and able to be extruded through additive manufacturing techniques for fast prototyping and development as opposed to common molding methods.
