I have formally taught as a Teaching Assistant at the University of Michigan, but I have always been a willing teacher and mentor in my corporate engineering experience (at large and small companies) as an Electro-Optical & Laser Imaging & Communications System Engineer.

I have formally taught as a Teaching Assistant at the University of Michigan, but I have always been a willing teacher and mentor in my corporate engineering experience (at large and small companies) as an Electro-Optical & Laser Imaging & Communications System Engineer. My formal training is in honors physics and mathematics, but I have been a generalist who has always enjoyed teaching and helping engineers understand how their specialties (optics, electrical, mechanical, & software) have integrated into the whole design or development of a device/product

Although I was a physics major, I have a minor in mathematics, since math is such an integral part of physics; as it quantifies the structure of our world. I have personally done all of the theoretical and analytical work on the design of sensor systems I have built throughout my career. My working knowledge of algebra, trigonometry, geometry, calculus, differential equations, special functions and their practical use in science enables me to ground mathematics in concrete terms to students and simplify the context in which they are used. I also specialize in “word problems” which troubles so many students, since I have been essentially doing them my entire career.

I realize that most people either have difficulty or hate physics. I have been a project lead engineer of optical and laser sensor systems for over 30 years. Every aspect of sensors is based in physics and the functional integration of the physical sciences and engineering in a single device, therefore I am current in my understanding of the integrated physical world. Most engineers are not trained in sensor specialties, so throughout my career I was forced to hire and train my own staff in electro-optical specialties. Hence, I had a vested interest in both teaching these young engineers and having them succeed from my instruction for my project to succeed. This experience has trained me to communicate physical principles in as simple a manner as possible as a guide in how to appropriately think ab
