I am an Associate Professor of Mechanical Engineering with a specialty in impact biomechanics.  Prior to joining Cal State LA, I spent nearly nine years working for a forensic engineering company and four years working for General Motors in Safety and Crashworthiness.  I have spent the last few years developing an Applied Injury Biomechanics Laboratory and teaching various mechanical and biomechanical engineering courses.    



My research interests are in the field of injury biomechanics, safety system development and forensic science.  More details may be found on the Applied Injury Biomechanics Laboratory website: http://www.calstatela.edu/aibl/
