I am currently the LBNF/DUNE-US Project Manager. The Deep Underground Neutrino Experiment (DUNE), supported by the Long-Baseline Neutrino Facility (LBNF), is an international endeavor hosted by the U.S. Department of Energy’s Fermilab. DUNE brings together scientists and engineers from more than 30 countries around the world, all sharing the same goal: to understand the neutrino, one of the most elusive and mysterious subatomic particles in the universe.

I previously held multiple leadership positions on US ITER including Ion and Electron Resonant Heating systems, Instrumentation and Control, Deputy Project Manager and Interim Project Manager.


My primary current research focus is Reinforcement Learning control for Ion Cyclotron Resonant plasma heating.
