- Thrust Area Specialty: Design Materials and Manufacturing
I serve as one of two undergraduate academic and career advisors for undergraduate students in the Mechanical Engineering (ME) Department. I am a member of the ME Undergraduate Curriculum Committee, which helps shape our undergraduate policies and curriculum. Some of my other responsibilities include teaching undergraduate courses (including ME3614, Mechanical Design I), scheduling ME courses on the timetable, and updating the ME undergraduate website. I also develop software to help track the progress of ME undergraduates and work with students who are not making sufficient progress towards their degree. I have walk-in advising hours on weekdays (no appointments needed) for current and prospective ME students (last names N-Z).
