Research Interests

My research is interdisciplinary, using scholarship in education, engineering, and Black studies, I study methods of counteracting anti-Black racism within mechanical engineering study and practice. Specific topics include: Black-centered design, pre-college engineering instruction, eco-centric materials and decision-making, sociotransformative engineering.
