Home

Welcome to my website! I am a PhD student in the Bradley Department of Electrical Engineering at Virginia Tech.

My research focus is mainly on electrical insulation system assessment, design, and monitoring for electrified aircraft and modern smart grid.

About Me

I am researcher who is passionate about making future dreams come true. My efforts as an electrical engineer are directed toward making the electric aircraft more reliable, the power distribution system more resilient, and the power transmission system more efficient.
