About James

I have over seven years' teaching experience in a military academic environment to include simulator and flight training experience. I have enjoyed working with young folks with differing educational backgrounds and teaching challenging courses in radar theory, computers, aerodynamics, and other technical courses. I have an undergraduate degree in Mechanical Engineering and have used that background extensively for the past twenty years as a systems engineer in the design and development of large-scale Department of Defense weapon and communication systems. My master's in Engineering Management provided graduate level work in probability, statistics, advanced engineering techniques, economic analysis, as well as various management and legal courses.

I have transitioned from industry and major engineering work to the academic environment as an adjunct mathematics instructor at Chowan University. My goal in academia is to pass on the multitude of lessons learned to the next generation of engineers and problem solvers.
