Dr. David J. Wojcicki has a passion for researching and engineering innovative systems that are beneficial to society. In order to create such systems, he believes a wide range of engineering and scientific disciplines must be involved. This belief is what motivated David to pursue an academic background that spans many disciplines.

In the initial system development stages, David believes that one must first view the system holistically. This is done in order to understand how each of the system components should integrate in order to fulfill the overall system requirements. This also provides awareness about other outside factors that may impact the system. David utilizes this approach in both research and in industry.

In his career, David has worked on several Department of Defense programs and Cyber Security projects. As part of his Ph.D., David focused his research on Renewable Energy Engineering. In particular, David studied Flat Plate Solar Collectors used for heating a working fluid.
