 Graduate Student
 MSc, Chemical Engineering, U. Alberta
 BSc, Petroleum Engineering, U. Alberta
Biographical Overview
Interfacial tension dominated flows and applied mathematics are two fields that keep me a happy and hungry student. The applications of the field are ubiquitous  from flow in porous media and mineral processing to microfluidics and 3D printing.
I received BSc and MSc at the University of Alberta where I worked with Professors Chalaturnyk and Xu. I am currently a PhD student with Professor Juanes.
