As a global expert in ISO/TC130, Bob participates in standards development activities in process control, metrology, and image quality. As the convenor of WG13, Bob leads the development of international printing conformity assessment standards.
In 2015 Bob published five technical papers. He presented a paper at the TAGA (Technical Association of the Graphic Arts) Annual Technical Conference. He and three of his thesis students also presented their research projects at the TAGA Conference. These students found jobs in the related fields upon graduation. By collaborating with industry partners from Hong Kong, Bob published a case study on using printing process control tools to print to standards. Bob was invited to teach two short courses at the Wuhan University, Hubei, China, in April 2015.
Believing that student-centered research is an effective way to learn, Bob continues his role as thesis adviser. He has been successful in connecting his student’s research and industry problems together.
