Background
Activities

I like teaching various topics in engineering (primarily in mechanics) and constructing algorithms using specific software. I'm primarily interested in numerical and matrix methods with engineering applications. Previous topics have included: the cooling analysis of the Landsat 3 satellite, the structural dynamics of the Mod 5a wind turbine generator, the analysis of the free-piston Stirling heat engine, the design of the piezotensegritic hydrophone, and, the investigation of the BS2 satellite MLC capacitor reliability. More recent activities involve the non-linear wave mechanics of particle interactions.
