Education

September 2003 PhD, Mechanical and Industrial Engineering, University of Massachusetts (Amherst, MA).

September 1993 MS, Applied Mathematics, University of Massachusetts (Amherst, MA).

May 1987 MS, Space Physics and Astronomy, Rice University (Houston, TX).

May 1984 BS(high honors) Physics, Lamar University (Beaumont, TX).

May 1982 AA(honors), Wharton County Junior College (Wharton, TX).

Interests:

Fluid Mechanics and Thermodynamics, Wind Energy and Renewable Energy, Applied Mathematics, Dynamic Systems, Stellar Astronomy, Hydrogeology, How People Learn Mathematics and Physics, History of Science, History of Mathematics

Experience:

I am in my 10th academic year of full time teaching at the college and university level with approximately half in mathematics and the other half in physics and astronomy. For the physical sciences, I have designed and taught a large number of the associated labs ranging from in class analytical experiments with data analysis to take home labs where the student is expected to make measurements on their own and perform the associated data analysis.

Similar to my prior experiences in teaching, my years at Alfred State College have resulted in many meetings with individual students. Much of this time is spent in assessing the prerequisite skills of students and mapping out strategies for them to succeed. This, together with a wide variety of other experience gives me the opportunity to contribute in a broad and meaningful way to Alfred State College through teaching and other projects/activities.
