His research interests are at the interface of technology development and sustainable design, with a focus on advancing clean water and safe sanitation for unserved and historically marginalized communities. He completed his postdoctoral studies at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. He holds a Ph.D. and M.S. in Environmental Engineering from the University of Texas at Austin along with a Graduate Portfolio Certificate in Applied Statistical Modeling. He also holds a B.S. in Civil Engineering from the University of South Carolina. His first-hand experience working with off-the-grid populations (indigenous communities in Mexico, Alaskan Native Tribes, Navajo Nation, and colonias of Texas) motivates him an engineer, researcher, and educator.
