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.
