Justin is a Technical Advisor with technical experience in numerous areas, including fluid mechanics, heat transfer, system dynamics, and materials science.

Prior to joining the firm, Justin conducted his doctoral research at Tufts University, where he investigated solidification phenomena using containerless processing techniques. The research was funded by NASA, and was in support of microgravity experiments that are conducted on the International Space Station. This work provides insight into improved processing methods and fundamental material interactions and modeling. Justin also conducted research on super-hydrophobic aerogels to earn his Master’s degree and aerogel catalysts for his Bachelor’s degree.

Justin has also co-authored multiple publications in peer-reviewed journals including International Journal of Thermophysics, Metallurgical and Materials TransactionsCALPHAD, and Journal of Sol-Gel Science and Technology.
