Bio: 

I am a Ph.D. Candidate in the Interdepartmental Doctoral Program in Transportation at MIT. I received my B.S. from the United States Military Academy in 2003 and my M.S. in Transportation from MIT in 2012.

My Military Assignments include:
-Tactical Intelligence Officer for 1st Squadron, 4th Regiment Cavalry Unit in Schweinfurt, Germany, deployed to Iraq in support of Operation Iraqi Freedom, 2003-2005
-Platoon Leader, Unmanned Aerial Systems, C Company 101st Military Intelligence Battalion, Schweinfurt, Germany, 2005-2006
-Executive Officer, C Company 101st Military Intelligence Battalion, Schweinfurt, Germany.
-Collection Manager for Intelligence Surveillance Assets, 2nd Brigade Combat Team, 1st Infantry Division, deployed to Iraq in support of Operation Iraqi Freedom, 2007-2008
-Intelligence Advisor for Iraqi Army unit in Khadamiya, 2007-2008
-Company Commander, US Army Recruiting Company in Toledo, OH 2008-2010
-Operations Analysis Branch Chief, Resolute Support Headquarters in Kabul, Afghanistan 2015-2016

Research: 

My research focuses on integrating small Unmanned Aerial Systems (sUAS) into current infrastructure inspection processes to identify failures following an extreme natural or man-made event.
My research goals:
1) Design a computational framework to integrate sUAS into current infrastructure inspection processes that supplements existing policies and accounts for various alerts and monitoring constraints.
2) Formulate and derive theoretical bounds for sUAS-enabled sub-network exploration problem to isolate failure(s) in a timely manner
3) Determine strategic allocation of resources
4) Instantiate the framework for representative use cases (gas and drainage networks)
