Introduction
I work on hydroelastic design optimization for composite structures. The current focus is on computational modeling for passive tailoring of the static and dynamic performance of lightweight marine lifting surfaces for use in high-speed surface craft or energy harvesting platforms. My research interests are in fluid mechanics and multi-functional composite structures.

Article
Full-text available
Predicting and controlling the steady and dynamic hydroelastic performance is a crucial challenge in marine composite lifting surface design. Excessive flow-induced vibrations and accelerated fatigue can be severe issues if not considered in the initial design. Most design optimizations only consider steady performance and neglect critical dynamic...
Article
Full-text available
Imperfectly scaled models are commonplace in aerodynamics and hydrodynamics because few facilities can meet all the flow and structural scaling requirements. The objectives of this work are to (1) derive and numerically validate scaling relations for the steady-state and dynamic hydroelastic response and stability of hydrodynamic composite lifting...
Conference Paper
The ability to extract quantitative flow information from photographic images of the velocity field using Particle Image Velocimetry (PIV) is a powerful alternative to the more traditional invasive or integrated method techniques. The usage of PIV allows the complete characterization of the flow field, and not just at discrete points. Additionally,...
