My research interests are in Complex Systems, System-of-Systems Engineering, and Information Fusion System—particularly applying statistical methods for information fusion performance evaluation. I have worked at the John Hopkins University (JHU) Applied Physics Laboratory and with a DoD agency in the area of fusion performance evaluation. I was the recipient of Alexander Kossiakoff fellowship awarded jointly by the JHU and the International Council on Systems Engineering (INCOSE) for developing performance evaluation methods for large-scale system-of-systems.
