Areas of Interest
I am working toward an M.S. with professor Roger Ruan. My primary area of interest is sustainability, especially in terms of energy studies, international development and soil and water. My University of Minnesota research includes a literature review on a biofuels sustainability analysis (thesis research) on various types of biomass. I have also conducted research on essential oil sustainability in Nepal and Third World charcoal production.
