I received my PhD in electrical engineering from WPI, focusing on signal analysis and machine vision. I held systems and design engineering positions with the Raytheon Company, GenRad Inc., and the MITRE Corporation before joining the WPI Electrical and Computer Engineering faculty in 1987. While I enormously enjoyed teaching courses on signals, communication, controls, and design at the undergraduate and graduate levels, over time my interests in interdisciplinary teaching and learning and international education resulted in increasing involvement in WPI’s Student Project programs, both on campus and elsewhere. I’ve advised hundreds of undergraduate research projects in Australia, England, Hong Kong, Ireland, Namibia, the Netherlands, Thailand, and the United States.  Learn more...
