I'm a fifth-year Ph.D. student in the Chemical Engineering department and I came to Yale from the aerospace industry.  I worked in Connecticut for three years post-graduation at Hamilton Sundstrand designing life support systems for spacecraft.  Our motto was "keeping you alive at any altitude", and it was a thrill being exposed to so many different types of closed-atmosphere technologies.  

In my free time, I volunteer for Tau Beta Pi (http://tbp.org/pages/About/Index.cfm), the Engineering Honor Society, as a New England Director.  I'm fascinated by nomographs, clocks and maple syrup.
