Research Summary

Research scholarship focuses on workforce education and engineering. Research in workforce education is primarily focused on learning of Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) content and pedagogy, particularly as related to the technology and engineering field. Towards this end, I concentrate my studies in two related areas: a) instruction and curricula development of engineering content for technology and engineering education; and b) research related to thermal designs and intelligent machines. These strands strengthen each other by providing real life engineering case studies for courses I teach and enhance communication skills used as an engineer and educator.
