I am Assistant Professor in the Department of Engineering at SUNY Maritime. Prior to this, I held academic positions at Bucknell University, Lewisburg, PA, Energy Reliability and Security Research Lab, Michigan State University, East Lansing, MI, and The University of Benghazi, Benghazi, Libya. At Maritime, I teach core courses as well as introductory courses for The Regimental of Cadets and civilian students. My research interests include optimal power system planning, Microgrids, integrated marine power systems (IMPS), and cyber-physical energy systems. My most recent research interests include the development of new teaching paradigms and technology implementations to cultivating undergraduate education.
I am a member of the IEEE, PES, IAS, IEEE Young Professionals and have been serving as a reviewer for numerous IEEE Transactions. I am a member of the ASEE Mid-Atlantic Section, chaired sessions at the FIE, and served as a panelist for the Department of Defense and the ASEE SMART Scholarship Program. As an IEEE and ASEE member, I continue contribute to the IEEE Power & Energy Society and the engineering community through scholarship, education, and research.
