About 

My goal is improving the capacity of the built environment to support and enhance human health, well-being, and performance.

My experience is primarily in the industrial, educational (K-12 & higher ed), and healthcare market sectors in facilities planning & space planning, requirements definition, conceptual design, detailed design, product design/development, and usability testing.  I also have experience in sustainable design, fabrication, construction administration, and user-experience design.

I had seven years of professional experience prior to graduate school.  While in graduate school, I added a formal background in human factors & ergonomics and systems science.  During graduate school, I was a research assistant, working in the healthcare market sector on the design of complex, interactive architectural systems, primarily with the Institute for Intelligent Materials, Systems, & Environments, the Clemson University International Center for Automotive Research, and the Roger C. Peace Rehabilitation Hospital.

I graduated in December of 2013 and am now transitioning back to a career in the private sector.  I have a temporary appointment with Clemson University's International Center for Automotive Research where my roles include research and design. Moving forward, I am focusing on complex, mission-critical environmental and product design challenges.
