My current research mainly addresses engineering aspects of renewable energy resources and global warming. I have spent the past decade on integrating renewable energy resources into MSU's microgrid, on reducing MSU's greenhouse gas emissions footprint, and on implementing energy conservation measures.

Prior to 2013 my research was primarily in nuclear physics, in particular heavy ion reaction theory. My research office was in the National Superconducting Cyclotron Laboratory on the Campus of Michigan State University. During the last two decades I have also developed interests in computational physics and cyber-enabled research. Until May 2013 I served as the founding director of the Institute for Cyber-Enabled Research (iCER).
