I am an environmental engineer interested broadly in the connections between energy and the environment. Our group is particularly interested in exploring the ways in which we can reduce and/or reverse those man-made processes that are contributing to climate change. I'm also a dad to three kids, the son of Cuban immigrants, and enthusiastic about being outdoors (hiking, fly fishing, backpacking, or skiing).
I am an experimentalist, focusing broadly on carbon sequestration techniques both deep underground and on Earth's surface. In my spare time, I enjoy being outdoors and building...pretty much anything.
I am interested in using data mining approaches coupled with life cycle assessment to evaluate the energy, environmental, and economic impacts of engineering systems. I also like traveling, playing PC games, and eating good food!
I use both experimental and modeling tools to identify opportunities to reduce the environmental impact of emerging energy technologies with a particular focus on natural gas and renewable sources.

My research broadly focuses on bio-energy systems and carbon sequestration strategies. I am particularly interested in aquatic bio-energy crops and use both modeling and experimental tools to analyze these systems. When I’m not researching, I am out eating something new, finding my next travel destination, or visiting my Salvadoran family in Georgia and Boston!
