Areas of Expertise
Mechanical engineering: thermodynamic analysis of complex energy systems
Gender diversity: increasing representation of female faculty and female students in STEM disciplines
Research areas: Female students
Increased retention and graduation through participation in cooperative education experiences

Currently Teaching

MECE-348
3 Credits
This course introduces students to contemporary technologies in a specific field of mechanical engineering. In the process of exploring these technologies, the course teaches and applies skills related to communication, economic analysis, ethical analysis, and explores the positive and negative effects of technologies on our society and environment. Specific attention is focused on current events both domestically and internationally.
