Research is a journey of curiosity and problem solving, discovery and learning, and publications are the milestones we leave along the way to capture and share those moments. As an engineer, I believe in the translation of science and research findings to practice and use and have structured the effort of my publication approach accordingly. Below is a selection of recently published work that has appeared in scientific journals, books and blogging platforms alongside several in-progress publications.
