Research Areas of Interest

I am a hands-on, practical design engineer with broad industrial experience and a passion for solving new problems.  My industrial work covered many areas including embedded systems, radar, neural networks, power conversion and distribution, image processing, and high-speed low noise analog signal processing.

My Master's work focused on renewable energy, power conversion and battery technologies.  My Ph.D work involved computer vision, robotics and communications.

I believe the best engineers are those with a broad understanding in many areas and excellent problem-solving abilities, so that is the focus of my teaching.  I enjoy helping students participate in hands-on competitions such as the NASA Swarmathon and the F1/10th Autonomous car race.
