Research and Practice Interests
Digital controls, robotics and automation, electric machines & drives, industrial & process control.
I have taught electrical engineering and electrical engineering technology courses full-time & part-time since August, 1982. I have also worked several years in the electric energy and control industry on electrical engineering projects. Prior to teaching full-time at the higher education institutions, I was senior electrical engineer and project manager in charge of the Electrical and Control Division at the Watkins Engineering Firm. Currently, I am a Professor and ECET Program Director in the Department of Electrical Engineering and Computing Systems at the College of Engineering and Applied Science. I am also program advisor for the “Electric Energy& SmartGrid”, and “Robotics & Automation” minors.
